Match Fit Couture
Football agents don't have to be middle aged men chomping cigars and muttering "monster, monster" as Suzi Wiseberg celebrates her 23rd birthday by becoming the UK's youngest female football agent.
And now getting her official licence after passing the FIFA Players' Agent's License Examination in 2005, the student from Hale in Cheshire is being recognised as a potential businesswomen to be reckoned with.
Despite a hectic education, she is due to complete her linguistics studies at University College in London, Wiseberg has a real entrepreneurial streak in her.
Recently she launched a range of tops including short and long sleeve t-shirts under the name Match Fit Couture with the objective of wearing something that pokes fun at the team your club is playing against with the words 'Real women don't date' and the name of the rival team.
The range goes from £19.99 to £34.99.
"I have been customising official team shirts for years. I fit into the kids shirts so I just cut them up and sew them to fit my shape and size and make them a bit sexier," she says. "Other football fans recognise me for my shirts and I get a lot of attention because of them, especially at away games when I take the girls along, all wearing custom-made creations."
And she has also signed up her first player.
"I already have one client, a Dutch goalkeeper, and when I have finished university I will build up my stable," Wiseberg reveals.
If the current range of tops prove popular, Wiseberg has revealed plans to expand the range.
"I am thinking about doing something for the World Cup this summer," she added.
