Player health safeguards vital to prevent post-Covid-19 match overload
FIFPRO welcomes steps taken towards the recovery of professional football in both national and continental competitions. However, we are concerned that stakeholders have so far failed to introduce safeguards to protect player health during what will be a highly-congested schedule.
In these turbulent times caused by the spread of coronavirus and shutdown of football, FIFPRO and our affiliated player associations are receiving a large volume of calls for assistance from professional footballers.
Whether you’re 16 or 36, it’s never too early think about the day you call time on your career as a professional footballer.That way, you’ll be much better positioned to bridge that gap between your playing days and the rest of your life.
FIFPRO takes note of the comments in and around the International Football Association Board’s annual general meeting over the weekend. While current proposals remain insufficient to adequately change the rules of the game to better protect players who have suffered a concussion, FIFPRO recognizes the intention to provide better protection as soon as possible.
