Some players in Latin America, Africa relying on food packages — FIFPRO

first_imgSome professional football players in Latin America and Africa are relying on food packages during the novel coronavirus stoppage, the global players’ union, FIFPRO, said on Wednesday.FIFPRO, which has affiliates in 65 countries, also noted that other players elsewhere are being pressured into returning to play, sometimes without testing for COVID-19. As football begins to reawaken following sports’ suspension nearly worldwide, the union said the consequences for some of its members away from the mainstream leagues had been dire.“There is an under-representation of the hardship that many players in less pronounced parts of the football ecosystem are facing,” FIFPRO general secretary Jonas Baer-Hoffmann told reporters.He said that seven member-unions, in Colombia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Honduras, Panama, Botswana and Egypt, were delivering food packages to players.“This is because they cannot provide for their own basic needs and are stranded in terms of income.”In countries where players had started training again ahead of a resumption of the league, Baer-Hoffmann added that conditions were often far from ideal. “Some leagues are not providing testing material for the players, which increases the risk of infection tremendously,” he said, adding that, in some cases, unions were stepping in to provide coronavirus tests.There were also cases of players being threatened with disciplinary action for expressing concern about the health of their families.Baer-Hoffmann further pointed out that there were those being asked to sign a waiver regarding the consequences of a possible infection.“This is unacceptable,” he said.While players in countries such as England had spoken out, that was not possible for others. “The vast majority of players are under the same economic pressure as most people in society and don’t have the luxury of insisting on risk mitigation,” he said.“They need to put food on the table and many are returning to play with doubts and fears, because they have no other choice.”Reuters/NAN.—RelatedPosts COVID-19: NCAA to revoke erring airlines licence over non-compliance FRSC to Schools: We’ll arrest, prosecute drivers who flout COVID-19 rules Sanwo-Olu: We’re committed to fulfilling promises to Lagosians Tags: africaCOVID-19FIFProJonas Baer-HoffmannLatin Americalast_img read more
