Friends In Sport is a 100% black owned sports business that was formed in 2010 by Managing Member Julian Mixon.  It aims to address gaps that have been identified in the market by providing the following goods and services:

1.     Consulting

a.     Friends In Sport assists professional sportspeople in making the right financial and investment management decisions in the following ways:

                                          i.    Drawing up a budget

                                         ii.    Identifying suitable investments

                                        iii.    Managing personal finances

                                        iv.    Creating a business plan

                                         v.    Registration and setup of a small business

                                        vi.    Advice and assistance with tax

b.    The number of professional sportspeople that have ended up broke in recent times is endless. This highlights the fact that “sporting skill and financial acumen don’t always come in the same package, which is why many successful professional sportspeople run out of money once their hefty salaries stop rolling in.” Based upon research done the most common pitfalls are: overspending, too young to handle the excess cash, being too charitable, poor investment decisions, trusting the untrustworthy. 

2.     Sports Events

a.     You bring the event, we will organize it for you. Based upon our in-house experience you are guaranteed to get your desired event within budget.

3.     Sports Apparel and Memorabilia

a.     Friends In Sport has collected a few items that are worth their weight in gold and also looking to buy/sell a few more.

b.    Friends In Sport twee-shirts

4.     Sports Arena *COMING SOON!!!*

a.     Multi-purpose all weather surface courts that caters for Futsal (official and approved 5-a-side game of FIFA), Basketball and Netball.

b.    Futsal is hugely popular and one of the fastest growing sports around the world and yet only beginning to grow in South Africa.
