On Tuesday 7 February 2012 FIFPro will present the FIFPro Black Book Eastern Europe at a press conference in Brussels, Belgium.


The worldwide players’ union for professional footballers will officially present the first copy of the book to representatives of the European Commission, the European Parliament and Europol.


The FIFPro Task Force Eastern Europe did research into problems professional footballers encountered in Eastern Europe. The Task Force examined the following issues:

  • Payment of salaries and bonuses
  • Training
  • Violence
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Match fixing 
  • Racism and discrimination


Thousands of footballers in Eastern Europe cooperated in this study. The results are given in the Black Book: a report with a long list of abuses in Eastern Europe. 


FIFPro is pleased to invite all journalists and media representatives interested in this topic to the press conference and the presentation of the Black Book. Those attending the meeting will include the FIFPro Task Force members, members from the Eastern European unions and others.
