The Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations (FICA) held its Annual Meeting at Adelaide Oval this week, the first in person meeting of the full Board post the Covid-19 pandemic. The meeting was attended by the leaders of all FICA member players’ associations, president Lisa Sthalekar, and several guest presenters including:
Key agenda items included:
The 2023 FICA Annual Meeting will be held in India during the men’s 50 Over World Cup.
FICA President Lisa Sthalekar said:
“Players and their associations have expressed a strong commitment to working together in a united way through FICA towards the next ICC Events cycle, and on addressing the opportunities and challenges facing players and the game. It was great to hear different perspectives from various players, ICC Chairman Greg Barclay, and Head of Sports at Disney Star, Sanjog Gupta, on how the players can be working in partnership with other stakeholders to strengthen the game.”
FICA Executive Chairman Heath Mills said:
“Where there are players’ associations around the world, we know that there will be better terms and conditions for players to operate in, and often good professional relationships with governing bodies. We remain concerned when we see and hear of examples of players being restricted or stopped from joining a players’ association or being able to freely organise themselves into a collective to have a voice and ensure they’re treated fairly. We are looking forward to working with the ICC on resolving this problem for those players who continue to be impacted.”
