Jeppe Curth is the new President of the Danish Football Players’ Association, Spillerforeningen. Starting Monday June 6th, the player of Viborg FF takes over from Thomas Lindrup, who will continue as the union’s Head of Player Management.

The Spillerforeningen board recently took a unanimous decision to elect Curth as Lindrup’s successor. Lindrup had been President since March 2006 and recently celebrated his 10th year anniversary.

“We are very pleased that Jeppe Curth has accepted his new role as President,” said Spillerforeningen director Mads Øland. “He has been an important and integral part of the union and our board, and we are certain that he is the right man for the job.”

“The timing could not be any more perfect for this transition. It is a unique opportunity to strengthen our organisation. In Jeppe we get a President, who has a deep understanding of our work and who is still active as a player. At the same time Thomas gets the chance to focus even more on developing and continuing our player management.”

Curth is a 32-year old forward who has played professional football in Denmark and The Netherlands. He made more than 40 appearances for various national youth teams. Since 2014 he is playing for Viborg FF, the number 8 of this season Superliga, Denmark’s top division.

“I am of course very happy and proud to be elected President of Spillerforeningen,” Curth said. “I have been a part of the work here for a long time and I look forward to contribute even more. I am not planning to come in revolutionize everything. Thomas has done a fantastic job, and my job is to continue his great work. I am going to put my mark on things of course, but I do not think people should expect any ground-breaking changes.”
