AC13 Premier

About Us

Established and Founded in 2009 by best friends Marlon Harewood and Andrew Cole, the business soon took off through the Marlon’s direct contacts within the footballing world. Initially dealing for friends in the game, the word soon spread of the impeccable customer service, gaining new clients ever since.

After a bad experience with one of his car deals Marlon asked Andy if he could help sort his next deal, once he did and all went smoothly, this is where the idea initially came. They both thought this could work and AC13 was created.

The business has been built on the service we provide to all of our clients and are trusted by some of the games biggest names. Although we are largely known for how many professional footballers we look after, you could easily be mistaken into thinking we solely deal with high profile clientele, which is wrong. Any person who walks through our doors will get treated exactly the same.
