Apertura Sports is an internationally operating agency that has specialised in various business areas related to football since 2010. The most important areas are certainly the support of professional players' or coaches' careers. At the same time, however, it also advises clubs and officials on the subject of internationalisation, as well as arranging investors and outside capital.
Our CEO / Co-Founder

Mr. Johannes Graf Strachwitz

Johannes Strachwitz is probably what you could call a "serial entrepreneur". Originally coming from the entertainment and music business, he accompanied the careers of numerous successful artists since 1997 with his company "0711" (link to 0711.net) and built up a worldwide network to the most different brands and influencers from the most different areas.

Various companies were founded over the years, all working together in an interdisciplinary way. In 2006, there was then the first points of contact with professional football. With the founding of Apertura Sports, this was finally solidified and Johannes Strachwitz's personal focus was fully set on football.
OUR ATTORNEY AT LAW/ CO-FOUNDER

Mr. Martin Rath

Martin Rath is a lawyer and has a law firm in Reutlingen. He has been active in football for almost 20 years.

In the beginning, he primarily advised Bundesliga clubs in many legal matters. Then, increasingly, players' agents also sought his help in contractual matters. Finally, he also took on more and more mandates directly from players. The logical consequence was the foundation of the company Apertura Sports with his partner Johannes Strachwitz.

Martin Rath travels a lot in Asia for the company and is considered one of the absolute top experts in Europe when it comes to football in Asia.

Global Office

Global Partner

Apertura Sports sees itself as a small but fine boutique agency, with specialist knowledge and contacts. In markets where most European clubs lack access or experience and permanent presence.

Of course, we have a strong network in our home market of Germany and the associated leagues. But football does not end there for us. We want to build the bridge between Europe and other markets in the world. Especially in Asia. This is where we see our niche. This is where we specialised early on.
