“Winning is not a sometime thing;
it’s an all the time thing.
You don’t win once in while; you don’t do things right once in a while; you do them right all the time.
Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.”
- Vince Lombardi
In short: we are sports agents focused on helping professional soccer players to compete at the highest levels around the world.
S&E Entertainment, Inc. provides full representation services to athletes, securing trial opportunities at professional soccer clubs across the world, negotiating professional soccer contracts, and creating additional revenue streams for our clients, such as endorsements, coaching, and performance bonuses. It is our passion to enable our clients to live out their dreams of being professional athletes. We draw upon our varied and unique experiences in soccer, law, finance, and business to make those dreams become realities.
Through strategic partnerships and a firm grasp of law, finance, and management, S&E identifies the individual needs of each client and tailors a solution that offers the greatest chance for that client to achieve his or her goals. Once a strategic plan is in place, we draw upon our extensive network of head coaches, general managers, scouts, and technical directors to place a client with a club. We work within all levels of professional soccer in the United States and abroad, including the MLS, NASL, USLPRO, PDL, MISL, PASL, and numerous leagues and divisions in Europe.
We are extremely proud of our clients and the success they have achieved on and off the pitch. We are also proud to call them our friends and business partners. Importantly, we consider the athlete-agent relationship an extemely close, personal relationship built upon trust and honesty. We approach every potential client, asking the question: “If soccer was not involved, are you someone we want to conduct business with?” We are looking for lifetime business partners, and we are vested in your success.
Founded in 2007 by Matthew Nagel, S&E Entertainment, Inc. was formally organized as a closely held corporation in 2009. Combining his background as professional player with his legal and business training, Nagel opened S&E’s home office in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. As one of the birthplaces of soccer in the United States, St. Louis has a historial significance in the American game and the city’s central location allows the company easy access to both coasts of the United States, as well as soccer hotbeds in Chicago, Dallas, and Kansas City. In late 2009, S&E Entertainment opened a second office in Dallas, Texas, headed by Christopher Detchessahar, to better serve the needs of its clients.
