Johan Cruyff Institute invites you to their event

The employment status of the professional football player: Labor issues and international transfers

About this event

Nowadays, football players are less reluctant to leave their place of origin to seek new opportunities in clubs far away from their place of origin. That requires that the football player must understand or at least have a basic knowledge about their labor status, and thus get a better understanding of the general professional player labor situation and contractual issues.
