The agency is part of ICM Partners, a world-leading talent agency which is dedicated to the representation of artists, content creators, broadcasters, authors, journalists and other creatives. Several of the biggest names in showbusiness, entertainment and literature are represented by the organisation.

With unrivalled expertise and influence in commercial, media and financial spheres, ICM Stellar Sports is dedicated to serving our clients with passion, distinction and a truly entrepreneurial spirit.


ICM Stellar Sports was born in 2020 following the acquisition of Stellar Group by ICM Partners.

Established in 1994 by Jonathan Barnett and David Manasseh, Stellar Group grew to become the most valuable football agency in the world (Forbes – December 2019), continually expanding from its original London base into new sports and territories.

The business was built upon the management and mentoring of young sporting talent in the UK to become a global company with agents and elite clients all over the world, including offices in London, Liverpool, United States, Germany, Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Scandinavia, Netherlands, and South America.

This acquisition and creation of ICM Stellar Sports was agreed to bring benefits to clients of both agencies; providing Stellar clients with opportunities to further develop their off-the-field earning potential with the expertise of a major US-based entertainment agency.
