QPA Board of Directors member, Abdulaziz Al Sulaiti denounced QFA disregard to QPA, which is the official representative of the players in Qatar, even though it recognized it.
He added that the transparency referred to by the Chairman of the Competition Committee at QFA requires consulting QPA prior to the issuance of a decision that affects the direct interest of the players and their careers.
Abdulaziz clarified that the ineffectiveness of the existing system is the main reason of the additional contracts, and QFA should have fixed the problem from its roots rather that issuing a decision that deprives a player from his natural right of movement. It’s unfair to restrict a player right to move after his contract term comes to an end. such decision results in a monopoly by the club over the player.
He added that this decision is undermining the players position especially those who are seeking an opportunity to play and improve their performance consequently their appraisal issued by QSL. On the other hand, the national team will be supplied by good players only if the local players had a chance to play.
QPA Board of Directors member, Abdulaziz Al Sulaiti demanded that QFA reconsider their decision immediately to rectify the situation and protect players’ rights.
Qatar Players Association have been incorporated in October 2015 as a private institution for public benefit. QPA is considered the first legal entity representing professional football players in the State of Qatar through an elected Board of Directors by a General Assembly comprised of football players.
