We have more than 25 years’ experience advising sports stars and elite world-class performance athletes, protecting their reputations and integrity.

We understand the unique world in which world-class athletes, footballers and elite sports teams need to be protected and the very different way in which their lifestyles operate.

A number of professional footballers, managers and sports stars have been subjected to armed robberies in their homes, carjacking, smear campaigns and accusations of serious sexual assault. Almost all of these threats and risks are intentionally targeted with a single purpose in mind: to smear, blackmail or extort money.

As a result of this and other threats to sports stars, i5 Risk developed a best-in-class, 360-degree protective services model. It is uniquely designed to provide a wrap-around suite of close protective services and intelligence-gathering for any footballer, world-class athlete or sports team.

Our protective services operators, team leaders and operational directors are all ex-UKSF, specialist protective detail (law enforcement) and OGA. They have guarded high-profile individuals, foreign dignitaries, diplomats, royalty and high-net-worth individuals.

We provide a unique, bespoke set of protective services, from residential security audits and planning, protective service teams, defensive and evasive driver training to the supply and provision of highly trained K9 assets to protect families.
