Global Player Council

The voice of the players

FIFPRO's Global Player Council strengthens the role of professional footballers in shaping their industry at an international level, reinforcing the mandate of FIFPRO and its affiliated national player associations to protect the interests of players around the world and safeguard their rights. Active players with international experience comment on, discuss and influence global regulations, trends and the strategic development of football worldwide.

What you should know

By the players, for the players

The Global Player Council is a platform for active players with international experience, ensuring viewpoints from both men's and women's football and different leagues from around the world are heard.

Strengthening the position of players

When decisions are being made that affect their livelihoods, footballers deserve a forum to have their concerns addressed. The Global Player Council is a vehicle for players with demonstrated leadership qualities to raise any issues they have.

Voicing issues on a global scale

While national player unions are the key driver of the collective voice of footballers domestically, the council strengthens the capacity to address cross-border issues, such as fixture schedules and recommended rest periods.
