CFPA (former professional football players association of the Czech Republic) was
established in 2010 as a result of discussions of former players about the need for
more effective and professional organization of veteran football movement and also
as a result of efforts to create a platform for the integration of the Czech veteran
football into European structures, specifically the Association of EFPA (Sports Group
of European Former Football Players Associations)..
In addition to the foregoing there was another reason for establishing the CFPA,
which was the need to create an organization that would become sufficient and
respected partner for government and business entities in order of raising funds for
the functioning of veteran football movement.
The main result of CFPA activities is the emergence of the Czech national football
team of players over 35 years old, so-called Czech Republic Masters, which was
represented by more than seventy former national team players and major league
players sofar. In more than 5 years this selection has played 42 mostly interstate
matches with an incredible balance of 35 wins and 7 draws. Yet the Czech Republic
Masters remain unbeaten.
