FIFPro is looking forward to the upcoming meeting of the Professional Football Strategy Council, where it hopes to reach a final agreement on the Minimum Requirements for Standard Player Contracts.

 

Last month, the board of FIFPro Division Europe accepted the latest proposal regarding the Minimum Requirements for Standard Player Contracts drawn up by UEFA, ECA and EPFL. Only small details remain which must be drawn up in order to complete the relevant approval procedures.

 

These last minimal details will be taken care of during the upcoming meeting of the Professional Football Strategy Council on Friday 26th August in Monaco. FIFPro expects everything to be settled during that meeting.

 

The Minimum Requirements for Standard Player Contracts will come into force in all 53 UEFA member countries.

 

The agreement in itself will conclude a long series of negotiations. FIFPro, ECA, EPFL and UEFA, the four Social Dialogue stakeholders, have been trying to finalize the Minimum Requirements for Standard Player Contracts since 2008 when the Social Dialogue Committee was set up. Back in 2005, FIFPro, EPFL and UEFA had already agreed upon the minimum requirements as guidelines and as a recommendation to national football federations, the national social partners.
