ABOUT FOOTBALLERS UNION OF BOTSWANA (FUB)

 

Footballers Union Botswana (FUB) is a body that focuses on the general interests and the direct or indirect promotion of the professional interest of the players. The Union is primarily established to increase solidarity between football players within the Botswana football leagues and structures. 
Our objectives are as follows:

  • To provide, promote, facilitate and safeguard proper welfare and conditions of former, current and future football players.

  • To develop an awareness of proper welfare and conditions of former, current and future football players.

  • To develop an awareness of proper working conditions and present requirements of footballers for both men and women.

  • To negotiate for improvement of working conditions of footballers and these conditions which include issues such as: Health and safety conditions and approved playing fields, housing, education, insurance, medical aid, funeral and other benefits.

Furthermore, we want to carry out educational training programmes for its members through facilitating seminars, study schemes, and scholarships both locally and abroad, carry out social research and economical analysis for the benefit of our members.

FUB’s vision is to improve social relations between clubs and players, between employees and employers within our sport, in particular through the creation of the first international labour tribunal, FIFA’s dispute resolution chamber. It is also to modernise the management of BFA by developing a consultation process with football’s participants.
  
FUB wants to ensure, in collaboration with the national federations, the welfare of young players and fight against the trafficking of underage players. Among other key commitments is to work with the officials and authorities of the local game towards football becoming truly professional throughout the country, in cooperation with the Botswana Football Association (BFA) and with dual major objectives like the creation of a uniform contract for professional players and instauration of national Dispute Resolution Chambers (DRC) made up of player representatives and the national association.
