SCOPE OF OPERATION
NFA PLAYER SERVICES
We shall do all that necessary to protect and improve the well being and status of all professional players to eradicate the previous situation where players are shabbily treated; and to ensure fair treatment between club and players.
Education remains one the pillars of NFA. We provide assistance to current and retired members undertaking educational training to prepare for the future. We are saddened by seeing footballers becoming drivers & security, guards during retirement.
We also realized that players spend a batter part of their time playing football and when they finally retire employment becomes a problem because we can’t all be coaches.
4. LEGAL SERVICES
Our legal depart is well updated with seasoned lawyers with knowledge of football contracts. Since we have realized that most players due to ignorance often get tied up in clumsy contracts from which they may not be able to extricate themselves.
5. REPRESENTATION AT ARBITRATIONS
To ensure fair hearing between club and players at the arbitration panel by providing representation for players making claims or facing disciplinary charges.
6. MEDICAL INSURANCE
To improve medical insurance for all members, in order to soften the hard days of permanent disability and unforeseen event.
7. COMMERCIAL INTEREST
To protect and promote the commercial interest of members, in this regard, we ensure that members receive all monies that come from images right, TV right, and all commercial ventures.
Since education remains the central pillars of NFA, we shall assist in sending members to coaching training, to provide suitable platforms for a coaching career after hanging the boots.
We have come to realized that most players have terrible attitudes problem which has caused unspeakable derailment in what supposed to be a blossoming career among member due to indiscipline and recklessness. We shall endeavor to encourage member especially young and coming player to maintain discipline and hard work, the only price payable to achieve success in football. We have a pilot scheme aimed at encouraging more respect towards referees and opponents on and off the pitch.
