FICA benefits from the expertise and collaboration of its member players’ associations. It operates in a number of different areas and offers a range of services to both its member players’ associations and the collective of players it represents.
“In an increasingly challenging landscape for cricket around the world, it is imperative that players are both well informed and consulted on all matters concerning our game. FICA bears the responsibility of acting as the collective voice of players, not only ensuring that their concerns are heard, but that decisions that shape the future of cricket are taken in the best interests of the global game.”
Vikram Solanki - President
“Cricket is a truly global game. As players we need a strong voice supporting us worldwide. FICA is that voice."
AB de Villiers
"As part of the FICA Player Advisory Groups, we want to make sure we play our role in ensuring players are collectively having their say on the future of the game.”
“Our Principles reflect FICA’s ongoing commitment to the protection and enforcement of players’ rights globally, and the advancement of the global game. Those things are not mutually exclusive.”
Tony Irish, Executive Chairman
"Players should be encouraged to speak up on big issues in sport and society. With strong leadership cricket can be a genuine force for good."
"I would love to see the role of players' associations embraced across the whole cricket world. Player voice is important to protecting both players and the game. In my experience players care deeply about the game and want to ensure it's healthy and thriving."
To be recognised and respected as the global representative federation of all professional cricketers, past and present, around the world.
FICA is the world players’ body in cricket.
FICA is a democratic player-driven organisation that brings together the world’s ‘organised’ professional cricketers under an international body which focuses on matters that affect the players collectively, and the global game. Players who are members of a FICA member association are, by extension, also guaranteed the support of the other players’ associations in other countries.
Our priorities are:
Players: Serving players’ collective interests globally
The Game: Positively influencing the direction of the global game
Member Players’ Associations: Strengthening and growing our global influence
Our Team & Approach: Building a world class organisation
