Fifa And Fifpro Agreement

FIFA President Gianni Infantino welcomed the new initiative and said: “This agreement and our commitment to helping players in a difficult situation shows how we interpret our role as the World Football Federation. We are also here to reach those who need it, especially within the football community, and it starts with the players who are the key players in our game. FIFPRO and FIFA have signed a cooperation agreement that signs a smartphone app that allows professional footballers to report matches rigged anonymously. Under the agreement, both organizations will support software that facilitates anonymous notification of suspicious and irregular movements in sport. FIFA and FIFPro are pleased to announce that they have agreed on FIFPro`s participation in the implementation of FIFA`s new rules on international transfers of football players. As part of the comprehensive agreement, the International Footballers` Union will put an end to the legal challenges it had launched against the new rules. In accordance with the agreement reached at the beginning of the year with the European Commission, FIFA will review the new international transfer system after two years of operation. To this end, FIFA will consult with FIFPro and other interested parties. The agreement provides for the creation of a monitoring committee made up of representatives of FIFA and FIFPRO to process, evaluate and process FIFA-FFP applications. Although these grants do not cover all salaries due to players, this fund provides an important safety net. FIFA President Joseph Blatter hailed the agreement as a milestone for football: “I am very pleased that the players have been able to join all the other parties to put the new system into practice.

From the beginning, FIFA`s goal was to involve all members of the football family. With the participation of FIFPro, the interests of the players will be well represented. During these long negotiations, I have respected the management of FIFPro and look forward to continuing to work with them on other football issues. In accordance with the agreement, the Red Button app is recognized as a valid reporting tool by FIFA and its own integrity department, and FIFA will review confidential information that will be transmitted via the Red Button app shared by FIFPRO. The International Federation of Professional Footballers (FIFPRO) has signed an agreement with FIFA to combat match-fixing in football. Following these commitments and the implementation of today`s agreement, FIFPro will withdraw the complaint filed with the European Commission in September 2015 against FIFA.
