ADDITIONAL OPENLEARN RESOURCES THROUGH THE PROFESSIONAL PLAYERS FEDERATION

The Professional Players Federation is an organisation that brings together a number of Professional Associations to focus on cross-sport issues that affect all professional sportspeople such as education, career transitioning, match fixing, mental health and anti-doping.
