    Goals / Remit

    EU Athletes is a federation of European players associations and athlete unions representing more than 35 national associations and 25.000 individual athletes across the continent and across sport disciplines.

    EU Athletes was founded in 2007 in order to protect and advance the rights and interests of the professional and elite level athletes in Europe. We represent the athletes' voice on various issues such as athletes rights, anti-doping, match-fixing and education on the risks of sports betting, dual careers or good governance.

    EU Athletes is an excepted stakeholder in the sport sector at the European Union, the Council of Europe, EPAS and other important sport and government committees.

    EU Athletes is also integrated into the wider labour movement as a member of World Players Association, the professional sports sector of trade union international UNI Global Union and its European branch UNI Europa.
