The Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) and the English Football League (EFL) have agreed a new extension to their funding agreements.
The deal, which starts with the 2022/23 season and runs for two years, will see the PFA receive a funding package from the EFL to support the players’ union on a range of priority issues.
The PFA will also continue to support workstreams delivered to EFL Clubs and broader EFL player welfare and education initiatives.
PFA Chief Executive Maheta Molango said: “Alongside the PFA’s representative voice on behalf of players across the leagues, we provide a range of services to both players and clubs, working closely with partners such as the EFL.
“This renewed agreement underlines the commitment that the EFL and the PFA have to our continued collaboration. It helps deliver important services that benefit and support players across the professional game.
“We value the partnership we share with the EFL, and, similarly, have seen their understanding of the importance of the PFA’s role as the players’ union reflected in our talks.”
