FIFPRO stands for
Player career and conditions
FIFPRO shapes and influences the provisions currently available to players across the world, as we strive to improve welfare and working conditions throughout the game. Just like any other industry, football is a player’s place of work and their career is their livelihood. They, just like any other worker, have rules and structures in place to protect their pay, their contracts, their working conditions and environment, their health and safety, and their development.
Institutions of work and the game
FIFPRO actively works to ensure players have basic protections upheld across the institutions and governance mechanisms that steward the football industry. Players need, and are entitled to, the same human rights and good governance practices as any other member of society, and the same legal protections as any other employee. This includes the right to organise and to bargain collective agreements.
Sustainable work in the football industry
FIFPRO advances the quality of working and playing conditions for players. While the football industry has gone through some profound changes over the years, the current acceleration of change is impacting the game. A sustainable working environment fuels the positive development of both club and national team football and addresses challenges, such as competitions, calendars, management standards, economic sustainability, innovation and diversity and equality.
