Vivid Sport is a company with a strong national focus and a holistic view to player management. We are committed to ensuring our players can focus entirely on maximising their on-field performance and potential while we ensure all is in order off the field.
With a range of experienced operatives and a network of people boasting a wide variety of skill sets, we provide a comprehensive “one stop shop” for AFL footballers young and old.
Vivid Sport is one of the AFL’s most active and engaged management companies and has a proven record of getting the job done, of getting players where they want to be. Like 2015 off-season trades Adam Treloar, Charlie Dixon, Tom Bell and Zac Smith.
We have done some of the biggest deals in the AFL. Like Kurt Tippett.
We have steered players through some of the great personal stories in football. Like Mitch Robinson, Brendan Whitecross and Allen Christensen.
We are helping to guide the careers of some of the hottest young talent in the AFL. Like Eric Hipwood, Lachie Weller and Aliir Aliir.
When Emma Zielke and Sabrina Frederick-Traub took the field in their first ever AFLW game we were so proud of what they had achieved just to get to that point. And when the siren went at the end of the Grand Final we were even more proud.
We stick by our players through good and bad. And when a player is de-listed we continue to support them, either by endeavouring to find them a new AFL home, or to pursue football at another level. Like Josh Watts, Hugh Beasley, Tom Curren and Clay Cameron.
We take great pride in our loyalty to players and we were overjoyed when Sam Collins (Fremantle), Michael Hartley (Essendon) and Blake Grewar (Brisbane) were taken as mature age draftees in 2015 and 2016 after being overlooked several times.
But Vivid Sport isn’t just about the players. We also manage a range of AFL coaches. Like Ken Hinkley, Michael Voss, Josh Drummond, Rhyce Shaw and Daniel Merrett.
In the ultra-professional, ever-competitive and often impersonal environment of the AFL it is more than a business for the team at Vivid. We genuinely care about the players and coaches who make up the Vivid family. For us it's personal.
