The PFA is the exclusive representative body and collective bargaining agent of Australia’s elite professional footballers, including the Socceroos and the Matildas, those players in the A-League Men and A-League Women, as well as emerging talents playing in Australia and throughout the world.

Established in 1993, the PFA was formed with two key objectives: to support the players and build the game. It remains the longest established stakeholder in the professional game in Australia. The key to its longevity is the players. Since its establishment the PFA has, and always will be run by the players for the players.

The PFA has provided players with world class collective bargaining agreements, player development and wellbeing programs and legal representation and advice.
