  11. Why should I join?
  12. Apart from the benefits mentioned above the aim of the association is to protect the interests of current and future players. Whilst being a footballer is a great job, players are only one bad injury away from not forming part of a club or a few bad games away from being fired. Sadly it is only when things go wrong that players realise the need for a football players association to look after them. However a football players association without members is nothing and it should be made up of as many members as possible.
