The Team England Player Partnership (TEPP) was established by England players who hold a contract with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to represent the England male cricket team. The aim of the partnership is to look after the needs of professional England cricketers, working closely with the ECB to ensure that players’ rights are protected.
TEPP negotiates and manages the scope and nature of the England players’ duties in accordance with their contracts with the ECB; protecting and promoting their employment and commercial rights, as well as helping to maximising their income. TEPP also ensures that the Partnership’s income is distributed fairly amongst its members.
Since 1999, each player selected by the ECB to represent the England male team in international cricket (including Test, One Day International and Twenty20 International), has individually entered into a contract with the ECB, governing the terms of his employment. Since 1 October 2001, the standard terms of all players’ contracts with the ECB have been negotiated for and on behalf of the England players by TEPP.
