The FFP is a joint project between FIFA and FIFPRO, the World Players’ Union, established to provide financial support to players who have not been paid and have no chance of duly receiving the wages due to the extinction of their respective clubs.

FIFA has set aside USD 16 million for the fund up to 2022, with this allocation to be divided as follows: USD 3m in 2020, USD 4m in 2021 and USD 4m in 2022, plus a further USD 5m for the retroactive protection of players’ salaries for the period between July 2015 and June 2020.
