What is an MPIO? 

A Member Protection Information Officer (MPIO) provides information about the rights, responsibilities and options available to an individual making a complaint in sport. 

They can also inform and advise sport administrators and complaint handlers in Member Protection Policy for specific sports. MPIOs are impartial and don’t mediate or investigate complaints. 

They may reside in a club, state association or national sports organisation and can also freelance. 

Each club within Northern Inland Football is required to have a recognised MPIO.
