Jump to navigation Jump to search

Rachel Anderson is a British football agent. She was the UK's first female FIFA-licensed agent.[citation needed]


Anderson's first occupational interest was journalism. As an agent, she has represented Don Hutchison, Julian Dicks, Michael Hughes, Joe Royle and more than 50 football players over her career. She has also represented companies such as Universal and Paramount, and worked on brands such as Superman and Bugs Bunny.[1]

In 1993, Anderson negotiated the sale of Julian Dicks from the West Ham to Liverpool for £3 million.[2]

In 1998, she was refused admission to the PFA's annual Awards evening, which at the time was men-only. She subsequently sued the PFA and was awarded £7,500 damages, plus costs.[3]
