Union Representation

Players have a rightful position to in deciding how the industry is run. They must have a say in issues that affect their working conditions through collective agreements, collective governance models and the integration in decision-making structures.

Human Rights

By advancing fundamental rights of players within the football industry we are firmly committed to the broader human rights framework. The historic development of the football industry demonstrates that when the fundamental human- and labour rights of players have been protected, respected, and guaranteed, sport has grown both as a social institution, as an economic activity and business.

Diversity, Equality and Inclusion

By advocating for a more inclusive football industry, in which the principles of diversity, equality, equity and inclusion are embedded, we want to ensure that all its participants feel welcome, respected, and have equal access to opportunity. As such, not only do we recognise the value of diversity, equality, equity and inclusion, but we want to be at the forefront of the battle against discrimination, and champion accountability and transparency.

5.

Player Protection

Players are often immediately and directly affected by market failure and imperfection in the football industry. Player salary protection schemes, standard employment contracts and access to independent arbitration as well as protections against abuse are vital guiding principles of our work across international and domestic football markets.
