We are Sport Community…

Ex-professional players know what it feels like to be part of a team. It’s the same when you’re in a union—people look out for one another. Sport Community is here for your whole working life, your retirement and your life after sport. Whether you’re employed, self-employed or retired, we’re always just a phone call or email away.

We’ve been supporting people in the football family for many years. Now we’re reaching out to ex-pros across sport so we can help with the issues you face once you’ve hung up your boots…

Sport Community is a partnership between Xpro Life After Sport and the Community trade union, offering help, advice, guidance and representation to former sports professionals.

By joining Sport Community you’ll be protected at work or have a place to turn to in retirement.

Here are a few of the ways we help our members:

  • Free legal advice so you know your rights
  • Representation at work if things go wrong
  • Guidance and signposting from our volunteer reps, who are all former sports professionals so they know your issues.
  • Personal injury support from our recommended union lawyers where you keep 100% of any compensation
  • Discounts on shopping, insurance, holidays and leisure

Help with life after sport

When you leave the pitch for the last time, you can be all too easily forgotten. Some issues affect ex-pros more than other people. Take osteoarthritis or image rights. Two different issues but ones that can be important for many former players. It’s not easy to get answers on your own or know who to turn to.

We want to change that! But we need your help…

We want to build two campaigns to push osteoarthritis and image rights up the political, media and football family agenda.

It might not be easy and it might take some time but together we can make a difference..

By joining Sport Community, you’ll be joining a network of fellow ex-professionals, with one goal to help each other and create a better life after sport.

Our Sport Community volunteers will be on hand to signpost you to the right places. But that’s not all… being part of a modern trade union means there will be lots more benefits of joining.

Help for you at work:

  • If you’re employed or self-employed our experienced team of advisors are on hand to answer your queries on a whole range of workplace issues.
  • We offer representation, mediation and settlement of problems at work, and if things can’t be resolved, our union lawyers are on hand to make sure our members are treated legally and fairly.

Help for you at home and on the road:

  • With a fantastic range of family discounts… Discounted cinema tickets, 2 for 1 dining, money off holidays and insurance… and much more.
  • With free legal and professional services advice… All your questions answered on property, family issues, disputes, benefits and more.
  • With FREE accident management services for you and your family’s cars, which can help you avoid making insurance claims.
