Over 45% of former players face financial difficulty within five years of retirement

When a player is forced to retire from illness or injury, it isn’t just the physical challenges they face.

A sudden loss of income and an inability to earn a living can make it difficult for newly retired players to support themselves and their families. When trying to recover from a career-ending incident, the last thing a player needs to worry about is how to pay the bills. Knowing that day-to-day family and living expenses are taken care of can be a huge relief.

Restart offers financial support to players and their families, providing them with breathing space to come to terms with what has happened and time to prepare for the future and an alternative career.
