Team England Player Partnerships
The Team England Player Partnership (TEPP) and England Women’s Player Partnership (EWPP) were established in 2001 and 2017 respectively, by England players who hold a contract with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to represent England. The aim of the partnerships is to look after the needs of professional England cricketers, working closely with the ECB to ensure that players’ rights are protected.
Protecting & Promoting Employment & Commercial Rights
TEPP and EWPP negotiate and manage the scope and nature of the England players’ duties in accordance with their contracts with the ECB. TEPP and EWPP also ensures that the Partnerships’ income is distributed fairly amongst its members. TEPP and EWPP manage the commercial interests of the England Cricket Teams including management of the players‘ commercial programme and relationship with the ECB and its partners. TEPP and EWPP work to ensure a complex set of contractual rights agreed with the ECB and its partners, suppliers and licensees are executed effectively and maximised to full potential whilst safeguarding the players’ commercial rights.
The TEPP and EWPP Management Committees are elected by the Partners of both Partnerships, and are responsible for the day-to-day management of the Partnerships. The Management Committees are recognised by the ECB as being nominated by the players to represent them with regards to the negotiation and administration of their employment contracts and Team England commercial activities.
