The new FIFPro board has met to discuss proposals that are expected to lead to the biggest changes to the football player transfer market in two decades.

FIFPro is cooperating with FIFA, leagues and clubs in a task force established earlier this month to conduct a comprehensive review of FIFA’s Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players (RSTP).

In what was the first meeting since officially taking on their roles, FIFPro’s 13-member board discussed a wide range of issues relating to the transfer market and the employment conditions of professional footballers.

“This is a key moment for the football industry, and the 60,000 players we represent,” FIFPro General Secretary Theo van Seggelen said after the meeting in Hoofddorp, the Netherlands.

“With new board members, and the fresh energy they bring, we are looking forward to working with the other football stakeholders to strengthen the employment rights of all footballers,” Van Seggelen added.

The task force recommendations made by FIFPro and other participants will be presented to FIFA’s Football Stakeholders Committee over the course of 2018 and beyond.

In addition, FIFPro is set to launch a new study involving a collection of the world's leading players to understand how they cope with match congestion. This research is designed to ensure players are not overloaded by their clubs and national teams.

Finally, FIFPro has established a task force to assess emerging technology that could impact the intellectual property rights of players. The task force, which will convene on March 1st and 2nd, will study areas including the evolution of broadcasting with virtual and augmented reality, and the use of performance data via wearable tracking devices.

The difficulties of statistical thinking describes a puzzling limitation of our mind: our excessive confidence in what we believe we know, and our apparent inability to acknowledge the full extent of our ignorance and the uncertainty of the world we live in. We are prone to overestimate how much we understand about the world and to underestimate the role of chance in events -- Daniel Kahneman (2011), Winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics
