New Delhi, Feb 14 (UNI) The Federation of International Cricketers' Association (FICA) today endorsed the players' contract offered by the Indian Premier League (IPL).

''I can confirm that I am now satisfied in principle with the form of the IPL Player Contract,'' FICA Chief Executive Tim May said in a statement.

''I am waiting to see a copy of the final draft of the agreement, following which I anticipate recommending to our members that the agreement is satisfactory for players to enter,'' he added.

May, however, felt that the nature of the tournament is such that problems might still arise between a player and his board which would have to be addressed.

''....Given the nature of this venture, there will remain some issues that certain players will need to still resolve with their national boards,'' he said.
