Get Pro Sports Management is a leading edge sport talent management company, founded in 2014 by Roberto M. Silva (Beto) an ex professional football player. With over 20 years’ of experience playing the sport, 10 of which spent in Indian football, Beto successfully transitioned into the business world setting up & managing the ‘Brasil Futebol Academia’ (BFA) youth development academy. The academy, independent of Get Pro, is currently operating in 4 major cities across India. Beto’s ethos ‘to give back’ drove him to invest his energy into developing the ‘beautiful game’ at the grassroots level & focus on home-grown talent in India, in a burgeoning footballing nation.
Beto’s love for the game, his vast knowledge of the ‘Football-Market’ in the country & the establishing of a new league in India, the Indian Super League has enabled Get Pro to be a game-changing influence on football in the country.
In the first season of the Indian Super League (ISL) Beto & Get Pro were instrumental in bringing three big names in the world football to India, namely Zico, the Brazilian football legend as the head coach for FC GOA, the flamboyant Andre Santos also for FC Goa & Elano Blumer, the ‘dead-ball’ specialist for Chennayin FC.
In season two of the ISL, Get Pro debuted Roberto Carlos, the ‘el hombre bala’ (“the bullet man”) bringing him to Indian shores as the Marquee Coach/Player for Delhi Dynamos, plus the former World Cup & Champions League Winner Lucio.
In February 2015, Get Pro Sports Management was a catalyst in the deal to take FC Goa’s player Romeo Fernandes to Atletico De Paranaense in Brazil. This was a ground-breaking transfer, the first time an Indian footballer played in the Brazilian First Division, the ‘Mecca’ of football around the world.
With season three of the ISL fast approaching Get Pro brokered the deal to bring Alexandre Guimarães, the former coach of the Costa Rica National Squad, to Mumbai City FC as head coach for the 2016-17 season.
