The PFA notes the public release of the independent review into the Australian National Teams (“Independent Review”). 

The Independent Review has identified manifest deficiencies in the existing set-up. To address this, the Independent Review has recommended improvements in the management of athletes within the national team set-up to ensure the FFA performance model genuinely reflects global high-performance standards which now are inseparable from the holistic wellbeing of, and duty of care to, athletes.

We look forward to FFA implementing the recommendations in full.
