The Professional Footballers’ Association Charity is a national registered charity established to provide (amongst other things) for the charitable needs of current players, former players and then the public in general in and around football and its many facets.
The Charity is established as a Company Limited by Guarantee. Its trustees meet several times per year usually in Manchester. Trustees are accountable to the Charity Commission, responsible for the day to day running of the Charity, and need to understand the application of the Public Benefit Test.
Trusteeship is a very responsible position and requires appropriate time and commitment as well as a clear understanding of the needs of the charitable beneficiaries. An understanding of the running of a charity, and the game of football and how that impacts on the wider community both within the game and for the public generally will be beneficial.Experience of either trusteeship or running a multi-million pound turnover organisation will also be beneficial.
