Teamworks will modernize internal communication and allow for players to access information instantaneously on mobile devices as the NFLPA preserves and enhances the democratic involvement of its members. The announcement reinforces the NFLPA’s position as one of the most advanced labor associations in the world and Teamworks as the preeminent solution for organizations looking to increase internal efficiency and capitalize on mobile technology.
“From our negotiations and representation to the day-to-day support and assistance we provide to our members, we do everything we can to enhance our members’ professional experience,” said Don Davis, Senior Director of Player Affairs and Development at the NFLPA. “With Teamworks, we can communicate with every active NFL player at a moment’s notice on a mobile device, and seamlessly share important information with members at every stage of their NFL career. Teamworks is a natural investment for us to continue to improve players’ experience, as the platform will facilitate our services to members in a more immediate, active manner.”
Having solidified its position as the go-to resource for collegiate athletic programs, Teamworks continues to expand its software to professional sports and other athletic organizations. Working with more than 375 NCAA Division I teams as well as many prestigious athletic departments including Duke, Texas, Purdue, Virginia, Ole Miss, Marquette and Baylor, Teamworks has become a fixture of student-athletes’ daily life. As those student-athletes graduate and join professional teams, coaches, staff and front offices are increasingly looking to adopt the software many of their players have already become accustomed to using. Teamworks has already made an impact in the National Football League, working with the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers, and Major League Baseball, having recently announced new agreements with the Washington Nationals and San Francisco Giants. Additionally, many athletic-related businesses and governing bodies are applying Teamworks’ software to increase internal efficiency including the NCAA, Big Ten Conference and Adidas Team Sales.
“The NFLPA has always been an impressive organization, uniting a maximum of 53 players on each of the NFL’s 32 teams, and remains at the forefront of attending to its members’ needs,” said Teamworks Founder, Zach Maurides. “Our platform is so well aligned with the NFLPA’s mission and from the very beginning has been designed to enhance players’ complete experience, on and off of the field. At any stage of their career, players now know that the information they need is accessible in the palm of their hand, effectively eliminating potential miscommunications and catering to the connected, mobile world we live in today.”

About the NFL Players Association
The National Football League Players Association is the union for professional football players in the National Football League. Established in 1956, the NFLPA has a long history of assuring proper recognition and representation of players’ interests. The NFLPA has shown that it will do whatever is necessary to assure that the rights of players are protected—including ceasing to be a union, if necessary, as it did in 1989. In 1993, the NFLPA again was officially recognized as the union representing the players, and negotiated a landmark Collective Bargaining Agreement with the NFL. The current CBA will govern the sport through 2020. Learn more at www.nflpa.com.
