The PFA’s services are open to all members but the PMA increases the day-to-day service of a player’s career management.
The PFA as the player’s union represents, protects and serves all professional players in so many different ways through their playing days and after they have retired from the game. Player Management has the structure and resources to accommodate players signing their first professional contract to a player who is seeking other secondary vocation paths after they have retired.
Younger elite players receive much attention with people offering them advice and services at a young age and it can be difficult for a player, his parents and family to be able to make the right decisions with so little guidance or information on player representation. The mealy that can surround the race for a youngster’s signature can cause the player to lose focus on what is important; the player’s football development. The PMA has assisted many young talented players through the early stages as they have gone on to have long and successful playing careers.
PFA Player Management will ensure that young players entering the professional game have access to contractual advice and also professional guidance in relation to media training, commercial opportunities, financial planning and education.
The PFA offers all 4,000 of its members an excellent service and the progress and growth of our Player Management service is further confirmation of the ongoing development of the Association to continue to meet the needs of the present day professionals. PFA Player Management has the structure, resources, knowledge and experience to meet the needs of any professional player in the game today. The staff at the PFA negotiates with football clubs on daily basis to protect and serve the interests all professional players and the PMA is an extension of that premise. All the clients that PMA represents will receive quality, ethical advice that is second to none.
A major benefit to any client of the PMA is that the majority of services that a player requires are catered for in-house and so are not reliant on external companies.
