What We Do

Who We’re For

The PCA represents every professional player in England and Wales; and once you’re a full member, you’re a member for life.

The PCA champions the ongoing interests of professional cricketers in England and Wales and here is how…

Statement to Members

Trade Union rules require the Players’ Committee to prepare Financial Statements for each financial year which give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the Association and of the surplus or deficit of the Association for that period.  In preparing those Financial Statements the Players’ Committee is required to:

  • Select suitable accounting policies and apply them consistently;
  • Make judgements and estimates that are reasonable and prudent;
  • Prepare Financial Statements on the going concern basis unless it is inappropriate to presume that the Association will continue to operate.

This statement has been approved by the PCA Management Board at its meeting on 26 February 2024, and received final approval by the Players’ Committee at the Annual General Meeting of the Association on 27 February 2024.

Chief Executive Officer

The Federation of International Cricketers Associations (FICA) is the global players’ voice in cricket

FICA was established in 1998 to unite all national players’ associations, including the PCA, which protect the interests of professional cricketers throughout the world. It brings together the world’s cricketers, regardless of nationality, religion, political persuasion or race, under an international body focused on matters of general interest to the game and its players.

FICA has established men’s and women’s Player Advisory Committees, comprised predominantly of current senior international players nominated by their home players association.

The Committees complement FICA’s ongoing program of structured engagement with its member players’ associations and players around the world to ensure it is accurately representing collective player views and interests at the global level.

FICA’s current Player Advisory Committees can be found on their website.

FICA is governed by its Board and Executive. Heath Mills is FICA’s Executive Chairman and Tom Moffat is FICA’s Chief Executive.

FICA's operational focus

1. Global Voice

• Professionally representing players’ views and opinions to the game (including at ICC level.)

• E.g: Global surveying, Player Advisory Groups, Global Employment & Cricket Reports.

2. Employment and Contracts

• Working hard to ensure that every player receives a contract that is properly negotiated and offers appropriate protections.

• E.g: ICC event squad terms, domestic T20 event standard player contracts, players’ association negotiation support, agent communications.

3. Player Global Safety and Security

• Player safety and security is FICA’s primary concern.

• Eg: Independent security advice (ICC events, international cricket and domestic events), best practice sharing.

4. The World Game

• Advocating for the best structure of the game and regulations to make cricket as good as it can be for players and fans alike.

5. Global Player Welfare

• Building a global support network to meet the needs of global cricketers

• E.g: Development of FICA Global Player Welfare platform, best practice and local and global support network
