Amateur or professional? What type of a player are you.

0 Flares 0 Flares ×
According to FIFA there are over 300 million players in football. And of course not all are professional players. Basically, there are two types of players playing the game in organised football associations: amateurs and professionals. FIFA defines professionals as players who have a written contract with a club and are paid more for their footballing activity than the expenses they effectively incur. All other players are considered to be amateurs (some of them are paid for playing, some not). The third type of players is not a part of the game in organised football associations: Sunday league players. Finding your category in football is essential in order to know what you have to do to make it in football and to get the best out of Fieldoo to help you succeed in football.
