EU Athletes – Supporting Athletes Across Europe

EU Athletes is a federation of European players associations and athlete unions representing more than 35 national associations and 25.000 individual athletes across the continent and across sport disciplines.

EU Athletes was founded in 2007 and has since taken a steep journey as an advocate for the athletes’ voice on various issues such as anti doping, match fixing and education on the risks of sports betting, dual careers or good governance.

EU Athletes is an excepted stakeholder in the sport sector at the European Union, the Council of Europe, EPAS and other important sport and government committees.

EU Athletes is also integrated into the wider labour movement as a member of UNI Sport Pro, the professional sports sector of trade union international UNI Global Union and its European branch UNI Europa.
