Athlete Agent Laws in the United States

After many hours of work, Sports Agent Blog has completed a compilation of Athlete Agent Laws in the United States.  Findings were cross-checked with multiple sources.  In the occasion that a piece of information seems vague, it is simply because the state itself does not provide a concise accounting of what the law is (part of the problem in the current landscape of athlete agent regulation).

Items included in the document:

  • State
  • Whether it is a UAAA state
  • Statute Name
  • Statute Numbers
  • Cost to Register
  • Cost to Renew
  • How Often to Renew
  • Additional Costs
  • Link to Athlete Agent Law/Active Legislation
  • Enforcing Department
