INVISION agrees to sell its stake in ROOF to United Talent Agency LLC

INVISION VI (”INVISION”) has agreed to sell its stake in ROOF (www.roof.football) to United Talent Agency LLC (“UTA”). UTA, together with its sports representation business KLUTCH Sports Group (“KLUTCH”), is one of the leading talent, entertainment, sports and advisory agencies worldwide.

ROOF, headquartered in Grünwald (Germany), has offices in London and Madrid and is a leading European professional football player agency. In December 2019, INVISION partnered with the founding senior agents of ROOF to develop the leading international football agency, dedicated to serving its clients across all major leagues.

During the INVISION investment period, ROOF grew substantially through a combination of organic growth and selected mergers with other like-minded agencies. ROOF progressed from the third largest agency in 2019, to the undisputed market leader in Germany. In addition, it grew internationally to become a leading agency in Europe, able to serve its client base of 150 players and coaches in all key markets.

Following three mergers, ROOF expanded its agent and shareholder base as well as its international footprint, including a strong presence in the UK as well as Spain. The value of the player roster increased over the years from below EUR 400m in 2019 to over EUR 750m in 2024.The successful development of ROOF made it into a coveted asset for international talent agencies and attracted the attention and interest of UTA.

Björn Bezemer, Shareholder & Managing Director of ROOF, commented: „Working with INVISION over the past years has been a true entrepreneurial partnership. We benefited from the sparring and support provided by the entire INVISION team and were grateful for the operational freedom they gave us. With UTA, ROOF is embarking into an exciting future, with a highly professional and experienced international organization that will help us serve all our players in their best interests.”

ROOF continues to be fully dedicated to providing its clients with optimal advice, holistic service and support as well as a unique platform from which to achieve their maximum potential during their professional football player and coaching careers, both on and off the pitch.

Peter Kroha, Partner and Managing Director INVISION: „Investing in ROOF and the team has been an amazing experience. As an early investor in the European football industry, INVISION believed in the opportunity and partnership with the ROOF agents. We are confident that UTA together with KLUTCH represents the best new owner to support ROOF in its ongoing development and continue its growth trajectory.

INVISION VI and the operational shareholders of ROOF were advised by PWC Legal, Poellath & Partner, KPMG, PKF Fasselt and FGS. For the purposes of the transaction INVISION VI was advised by INVISION Beteiligungsberatung GmbH in Düsseldorf.
