Continuing a tradition that started in 2021, Roc Nation have unveiled their Class of 2023, with five of the biggest youth prospects in Europe joining their roster.

The ‘Class of’ series was started by Roc Nation in 2021. Each year, Roc Nation adds an exclusive group of Europe’s finest young players to complement its existing star-studded roster, and this year is no different, with the line up including Reading’s Luca Fletcher and Thierry Rohart-Brown, Bolton’s Conor Lewis, Man City’s Seth Chingwaro, and Tottenham’s Theo Adelusi. The players have been officially welcomed to the Roc Nation family via an announcement video featuring Manchester City and Belgium superstar Kevin De Bruyne.

Alan Redmond, EVP & Global Head of Football at Roc Nation Sports International says, “It’s a privilege to welcome this incredible group of players to Roc Nation. They have immense footballing ability and character, and they each have an appetite to be the best. That’s what we look for at Roc Nation.

Nathan Campbell, Global Director of Recruitment at Roc Nation added “We work hard to identify the best young players each season. I’m delighted to add these fantastic players to our roster and I look forward to supporting them on and off the pitch.

Last year, Roc Nation’s Class of 2022 featured Lewis Orford, Michael Golding, Zach Marsh, Ezra Carrington, and Kaiden Wilson – all of whom have since finalised the terms of their first professional contracts. This year's class will hope to emulate their predecessors. The 2023 group consists of the following young athletes:
