FIFA Fund for Football Players: Over 1,000 applications approved

Following the landmark agreement reached by FIFA and FIFPRO in 2020 to establish the FIFA Fund for Football Players (FIFA FFP), which provides financial support to players who have not been paid and have no chance of duly receiving the wages agreed with their clubs, a total of 1,005 applications have recently been approved by the joint Steering Committee. As a result, 1,005 players from around the world will receive financial relief thanks to the grants that will be issued in the first phase of the fund.

The approved applications covered the period between July 2015 and June 2020 and concerned 109 clubs from 36 member associations that have either disappeared as a result of an insolvency-related process, disaffiliated from their member association, or stopped participating in professional football.
