Footballers and the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA)

What do footballers think about the PFA?

We are conducting research on how footballers value the PFA. As part of this project, we are looking to interview professional football players, PFA officials and PFA delegates about their work and thoughts on unionism.

You can take part by giving us your point of view in a one-to-one interview on the phone or using WhatsApp, Skype, Zoom or any platform you are comfortable with.


You can take part if you are:

  • Over 18 years
  • a Professional player (current or former)
  • a PFA official (current or former)

Participate or just find out more
