In an agency agreement, the agent undertakes to assume certain responsibilities and the adjudicating entity undertakes to delegate certain responsibilities to the agent in order to allow the agent to act for the client in the specific situations described in the agreement.

The sponsor claimed that his father, Richard Williams, had committed to participate in the tournament. The Williams sisters argued that their father did not have the authority to match them to such an agreement.
