About Support The Players National Emergency Trust (NET)
Support The Players National Emergency Trust (NET) is an independent emergency and charitable trust fund created by the NWSL Players Association to assist current and former players with financial hardships. Support The Players NET will provide financial assistance to players who cannot afford basic living expenses and will remove cost as a barrier to accessing mental health services.
Our athletes are underpaid and face financial hardships despite being among the top professional soccer players in the world. This fund was launched to address that need. On top of that, the systemic abuse revealed by current and former players during the 2021 Season will have a lasting impact on players’ health. This fund seeks to remove cost as a barrier to any player accessing the resources and support they need.
All current and former players who are members in good standing with the NWSL Players Association are eligible to apply.
