The Union Nationale des Footballeurs Professionels (UNFP; English: National Union of Professional Footballers) is the main trade union for French professional football players. It was founded on 16 November 1961 by Eugène N'Jo Léa and Just Fontaine, two footballers, and Jacques Bertrand, a jurist. As of May 2021, the presidents of the UNFP are Philippe Piat and Sylvain Kastendeuch.

Each month, a trophy is awarded by the UNFP to the best players in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2. At the end of each season, the Trophées UNFP awards the best Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 players, managers and referees of the season.
