Player Influence

Without players, there is no football

FIFPRO acts as a united voice for professional players across the world, to ensure their needs are being met in any decisions that could affect them in the football industry. It is important that all players have their say when it comes to growth and governance of the game.

What you should know

Players should be central to any evolution of football

They have a unique perspective of the sport, and their opinions are critical in ensuring that the integrity and fairness of the game is maintained.

Footballers are human beings, first and foremost

They then must be considered as workers with rights just like any other employees. FIFPRO's Global Players Council brings players together from across the world to represent the voices of their colleagues on an international platform.

The rights of players must be considered with every decision

In an age when the football industry is constantly changing and progressing, we must ensure that players' employment conditions are appropriately adapted in light of any potential changes to their working environment.
