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, which protect the interests of professional cricketers throughout the world (there are currently nine). 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's operational focus is on representing players including in the following areas:
1. Global Voice:
2. Employment and Contracts:
3. Player Global Safety and Security:
4. The World Game:
5. Global Player Welfare:
FICA is governed by its Board and Executive. ACA CEO Alistair Nicholson sits on both. Tony Irish is FICA's Executive Chairman and Tom Moffat is FICA's Chief Executive Officer.
FICA has also 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 are: pictures or names?
