The crowdfunding platform, started by Swiss Next Sports Rights AG, supports the career of young soccer players, participating in their success. The platform represents individual talents but also whole groups of professional players, which fans and sponsors are then able to invest in them. The return depends on individually defined milestones, e. g. contract renewal or an increase in the player’s market value after being sold to a different club.
The Osborne Clarke team that advised on the launch was led by Partner Tanja Aschenbeck-Florange, who was supported by Thorge Drefke (both supervisory law), Tim Maiorino (IT law) and Brussels Yves Stans (Belgian supervisory law).
