Growth of the game should not be limited to commercial profit
We prioritise professionalism, financial sustainability, and development for the players. For women’s football this allows the game to grow in a fair and equal manner; for the men’s game it involves focusing on the areas of the industry which are still financially fragile.
FIFPRO is constantly investigating the changing state of the football employment market
This includes collecting, analysing, and comparing a huge range of data concerning the economic and employment situations across the world. This is used to produce reports to inform how players are affected by the market, at a global, continental, and national level.
There is a current need to focus on smaller markets and lower leagues
Football’s increasing commercial growth calls for careful governance of the game going forward to ensure that commercially profitable leagues and ventures are not prioritised over smaller markets. Direct support of lower leagues will ensure the best employment opportunities for players and develop the game in a more financially balanced manner.
