Baer-Hoffman to step down from helm of Fifpro

November 9 – Fifpro General Secretary Jonas Baer-Hoffmann (pictured) is stepping down after 11 eventful years with the world players’ union, the last four as its general secretary.

During his tenure, Fifpro underwent a reform of its governance structure and constantly banged the drum for improved player welfare amid an increasing international calendar.

“After accepting the role as General Secretary, we set out on a strategic path to create a modern and progressive organisation on an historic foundation and with the strong values of player unions,” said Baer-Hoffman who will leave his post at the end of the year.

“Along every step of the way, we have carried out a process to make Fifpro the best vehicle to represent players on a global stage.”

“I feel great pride and satisfaction for the advances that we have been able to achieve for players with a great team of staff, the board and member unions. This journey has been a great privilege.”
