Due to the financial uncertainty in football it is now more important than ever that players prepare for a career outside football should they not be offered another contract. Their confidence may be damaged because they wonder if they are good enough, but in today's financial climate, playing ability isn't the only thing clubs consider.

Players are now prepared to go and play anywhere in an effort to secure a contract, and if they are following a course of education it may have to be suspended because of the move.The FIFPro Online Academy will offer the prospect of continuing your education on line without disruption even if you move to another country. Simply by logging in at the appropriate time you can participate in your chosen course in a language you are comfortable with.

We all live the dream of securing our financial future from playing football, but only a minority actually do. And too often players wait until the last contract before thinking about what to do after their involvement in the game ends.

Being out of contract is a situation players can't control, but planning your future away from football is one you most definitely can.

So whether your 16 or 36, have a one year or five year contract, now is the time to start thinking about the day you call time on your playing career.
