Welcome to FIFPro Winter Tournament 2011 which is a tournament organized by the player´s associations in Finland, Ireland, Norway and Sweden for free agent or Bosman-players. The aim of this tournament is to create a venue where player hunting for new club meets club-delegates and agents from the involved countries and rest of Europe. The experience from earlier FIFPro-organized tournaments has been very positive. A large number of the players who have taking part in those tournaments has shortly afterwards signed on for a new club. Now we hope for same success! The tournament will take place in one day with four matches – semifinals, 3:rd place match and final. The matches will been played in 2x30 minutes. Schedule 10.00 – 11.00 11.20 – 12.20 11.00 – 14.00 14.00 – 15.00 15.20 – 16.20

The Professional Footballer’s Association of Ireland (PFAI) was formed in 1961 and through experience has gained the knowledge of knowing how to look after the most important people in the league – the players. We are the sole representative body of professional and semi-professional footballers playing in the FAI National League and we have the continued support of the senior Republic of Ireland international team. The PFAI is a democratic, player driven organisation that ensures that its members are afforded the opportunity to develop their full potential in a professional and supportive environment. The PFAI has a representative on the Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC) which deals with disputes and appeals with the football authorities. The PFAI is a member of FIFPro, the World Players’ Union, and it is also a branch of SIPTU, the country’s biggest trade union, so any problems the Association deals with on the players’ behalf will also have the backing of these two organisations. The PFAI was set-up and run as a part-time organisation up until 2002 when funding from FIFPro and office space from SIPTU enabled the Association to operate a full time basis. Since 2009 the PFAI’s current full-time staff are – Stephen McGuinness, General Secretary; Ollie Cahill, Delegate Liaison Officer; and Sharon Smith, Office Co-ordinator.

Ireland – Team PFAI Liam Kelly is the manager for the PFAI Ireland team and he is assisted by coach Trevor Croly. Both players, along with Stephen McGuinness were all team-mates at Shamrock Rovers.

He returned to Rovers as assistant to Michael O’Neill in 2009 and they guided Rovers to their first championship victory in 16 years in only their season in charge in 2010. Stephen McGuinness. Stephen is the General Secretary of the PFAI and he was a defender in the League of Ireland for 14 years where he played for Home Farm, St Patrick’s Athletic, Shamrock Rovers and Dundalk. He won the League championship twice in 1997/1998 and 1998/1999.

Spelarföreningen Fotboll I Sverige (SFS) Camp and tournament preparations The main goal of the Spelarföreningen (SFS) is to protect players and their interests in all possible ways and to improve the conditions of all football players in Sweden. The SFS have around 700 members in 2009 and over 90 percent of the players in Allsvenskan (Swedish first division) are members. SFS was established 1975 and SFS General Secretary today, Gert Persson, was one of the founders back then.

International cooperation As members of FIFPro we have a lot of cooperation with other player unions. We have by natural cause’s very tight cooperation with our Nordic neighbors Denmark, Finland and Norway and in the FIFPro Winter Tourament also with Ireland.

We are very proud and honored to be part of the first FIFPro Winter Tournament played here in Oslo. Team Sweden’s preparations before the tournament did begin this summer with planning. In November we invited our members out of contract to be able to participate at our training camp in Gothenburg 10th to 13th of January 2011 and at the FIFPro Winter Tourament 2011. At the camp we had 21 very motivated players doing their best to be able to participate also at the tournament. In this players book we are happy to present our 16 player squad. Hans Gren former trainer of GAIS, Malmö FF and Östers IF have trained the players during this week and will take the team though the tournament. To take care of the players we also have our Physio Palle Davidsson. Magnus Erlingmark, adviser at SFS, are project leader for Team Sweden.
