Per a press release from the company, Ballengee Group has acquired Fischman and Wiltz Sports, an NFL representation practice, introducing the full-service Ballengee Group to football representation.
Certified NFL Agents Martin Fischman and Dr. Stanley Wiltz will be leading the new football division. Long-time client service managers Rick Roberts and Matt Gilley are also joining the group.
“Ballengee Group has the luxury of hand-selecting the people we believe in and who we know perfectly fit our model. We started in baseball, then revolutionized the Mixed Martial Arts representation model, and now we plan to do the same in football,” said Alex Ballengee who owns and operates the firm with husband James Ballengee.
Fischman explained, “Ballengee Group’s in house staff gives our clients access to a full-scale marketing, public relations, analytics and client services team.” “Ballengee Group’s creative brand building expertise vastly expands our clients’ reach, providing limitless business opportunities during and long after their playing days”, added Wiltz.
The expansion to football comes as Ballengee Group continues building on its unmatched success in baseball and MMA. In addition to its roster of UFC stars, Ballengee Group has negotiated two record setting fight contracts for former UFC Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez and combat sport legend Vitor Belfort with ONE Fighting Championships. Alvarez will make his ONE debut, March 31 in Tokyo.
Earlier this week, Ballengee Group finalized negotiations for the largest contract extension in Major League Baseball history for a Non-Closer Reliever for Houston Astros reliever Ryan Pressly.
