WAIPU President Dr. Lucien Valloni says:
We are very proud to announce that WAIPU and especially its member WAIPU North America did obtain support in their union drive from the World Players Association which includes among others the following members: NHLPA, FIFPro, MLBPA, NFLPA, NBAPA.
This is extremely important for us to help our member WAIPU North America in its tremendous fight for the rights of young athletes. Just this week a massive victory could be achieved for the players in North America. We have and will continue to fully support this fight and we will now be supported by the World Playes Union.”
