Luisa Gottardo is set to beat the field in a reality show for budding sports agents


Luisa Gottardo of Hertfordshire could become the nation’s next top sports agent.

Ms Gottardo, 20, has made it to the second final of the BBC Two reality show SuperAgents.

Dubbed The Apprentice for sports agents, the programme has been following six contestants vying for the chance to work with top agent Mel Goldberg, who runs Power Goldberg Sports Management.

The contenders have been taking a part in a series of tasks, including spotting new footballing talent on the pitch at the Liverpool Youth Football Academy and managing the day-to-day schedules of major sports clients such as Olympic gold-winning cyclist Victoria Pendleton, European and Commonwealth champion Mark Foster and Olympic medallist Tasha Danvers. Footballers David James, Jamie Carragher and Shaun Wright-Phillips, and F1 champion Lewis Hamilton also make appearances in the series.

Ms Gottardo, a sports science graduate from the University of Central Lancashire, tells People: “My Facebook page has been inundated with messages from people and the phone has been ringing of the hook. It’s my dream job to be a sports agent.”

Ms Gottardo particularly enjoyed the PR and marketing task and working with some of the sporting world’s big names.

“It’s already been a really been a great insight into the industry and has definitely given me a taster.”

The final of SuperAgents is on BBC Two on Saturday April 11 at 12.45pm
