KEFWA was formed in September 2011 in response to a perceived need to defend the rights of professional football players who at times are treated unfairly by employers (football clubs).[1] The association's stated intent is to act on behalf of the players in contract disputes, non payment of salaries, underpayment of players and improper insurance cover.[2]
