THE player transfer window for the upcoming season opens at the end of February next year.

This was confirmed by Fiji Football Association chief executive officer Bob Kumar who added they were bracing for a challenging 2014 season.

Kumar said the transfer window would not interfere with the Fiji Sun/Skipper Tuna National Football League, which starts on January 18.

The national league was earlier slated to begin in September this year but was postponed because of administrative reasons.

"In fact we were supposed to start the national league earlier but this will not have any effect on the transfer window opening which we earlier planned for February," Kumar said.

"The next transfer window will open in August."

Kumar confirmed there would not be foreigners playing in the domestic competitions next season. "As seen in the past, there is quite a heavy movement of players during the player transfer window.

"We are looking forward to a very active season with a lot of things happening next year."
