Over the last few decades football has seen an exceptional rise in popularity and commercial value, placing it as one of the prime sources of entertainment. FIFPRO strives to ensure that the sport develops with the players best interests in mind, and that growth of the game is extended across the whole industry – not just at the very top levels. The industry expansion has largely focused on the men’s game, and it is only in very recent years that women’s football has started to be acknowledged as an economic opportunity. Global factors, such as social justice and health crises, play a huge part in shaping the industry – presenting challenges and opportunities within it. A global collaboration is required to ensure that a level of stability and equality is maintained in these ever-shifting circumstances. FIFPRO is committed to creating as many high-quality jobs for footballers as possible, and works with governing bodies and industry representatives from around the world to consistently improve the global employment market for men’s football.
