Cape Town - The Federation of International Cricketers' Association (FICA) on Monday confirmed the appointment of Tom Moffat as Chief Executive of the organisation, whilst Tony Irish will remain as Executive Chairman.
Moffat, a former professional cricketer, and lawyer, from Australia, has worked as FICA’s Chief Operating Officer since 2016.
"It’s a privilege to continue to be in a position to represent players collectively at global level. Through their performances, players around the world make the game the spectacle that it is, and continuing to listen to their views, and making progress for them collectively globally, will remain our priority in the next period of FICA’s evolution as the world players’ body," said Moffat.
"We are intent on ensuring that players around the world understand their rights, that they are protected by the game, and that their views are taken seriously by those making decisions about the future of the global game. We care about the game and want it to be successful."
Irish welcomed Moffat and highlighted the significance of FICa's role in the global game.
"There has never been a more important time than now for cricketers to be well represented, and to have a strong voice, at the international level of the game, but also for FICA and the players to be part of important global developments taking place across all sports," he said.
"Tom has gained significant experience in the four years that he has already worked in FICA and is now very well positioned to lead the implementation of our new strategy which seeks to achieve these international and global objectives."
