About us

Our I-Con team

In I-Con Sports we look for offers for athletes to have the unique opportunity to get a scholarship to join a sports team of an American university. The combination of team sport competitions, together with the study of a university degree in the USA, plus personal growth through living with people from different places in the country that is considered the most developed in the world. All of this makes a difference in people who have the privilege of living this adventure, giving them the tools to be leaders of tomorrow.

Since 2003, we offer this service while remaining faithful to the exquisite treatment of each student, known as The I-Con difference

Marc Mucki Becker (Germany/Spain) and Alexandra Costa (Spain), founders of I-Con Sports, studied and competed at an American university with a sports scholarship. It was such an exceptional experience, that in 2003 they created I-Con Sports in Barcelona (Spain) to help other athletes to take advantage of this opportunity, opening a range of possibilities for success in sports, in studies and in the lives of athletes.

I-Con Sports have agents in different places so that they can streamline parts of the process and educate younger athletes on the steps to follow if they want to go to the USA with a sports scholarship in the future. However, the process of joining a university will always be carried out directly by the founders, who establish a specific number of athletes per year that they can take on in order not to harm the quality of the service.
