Federation of International Cricketers' Associations
The Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations (FICA) is an organisation that co-ordinates the activities of all the national players’ associations that represent professional cricketers. Founded in 1998, FICA serves as the voice of the players within international cricket as it has a representative on the International Cricket Council's Cricketing "Playing" Committee, although its relationship with the ICC has not always been harmonious.
- To promote the establishment of professional cricketers’ associations in countries where none currently exist.
- To develop communication between these associations across the world, encouraging contact between them so that they speak with one voice on matters affecting cricket.
- To ensure that individual associations are recognised by their domestic governing bodies and the ICC.
- Through their local governing bodies, cricketers should have an input to all decisions affecting the professional game.
- To protect the commercial interests of members of FICA.
- To assist individual associations to raise finance to ensure the development of projects which benefit their members, present and past.
