Social responsibility

Players as responsible role models

The Players Union aims to be an active participant in social discourse, and we want to offer our members possibilities to act as responsible role models. We organise, for example, a Finnish championship tournament for refugee reception centres and coordinate the Show Racism the Red Card campaign in Finland. Our Red Button app and ""Say No to Match Fixing"" campaign are part of our work to combat corruption. In addition to this, the Players Union cooperates with several other organisations in various responsibility related campaigns.

It is important for the appreciation of football and footballers by society that the values of our game are clear and on a sustainable foundation. In today’s era of social media in particular, players have good opportunities to act as roles models in society at the local and national level.
