About Us

Established by Nigel Weiss, sports finance specialist (and ex-City lawyer - Linklaters/Denton Wilde Sapte) and Mark Wollner, former Finance Director of Orange. Between us we share a passion for sport and have over 25 years experience of football club finance and mobile technology. Good for Sport’s offices are based in Surrey, within easy reach of London.

As sports financing specialists, we advise clients on all aspects of raising finance. We also advise on using mobile technology to develop new sales channels and incremental revenue streams.

Given our professional backgrounds, we understand that our clients lead increasingly busy lives and require exceptional service, delivered with discretion and integrity.

With our deep knowledge of the football sector, built up over many years, and our impeccable network of connections, we understand how football clubs work, the demands on board members’ time and how to work quickly and efficiently to deliver what our clients need.

We are not simply advisors. We are used to delivering professional services and client satisfaction and, together with the client, will create and deliver specific solutions to the client’s specific needs.
