FIFA agrees to rules change for transfer

Fifa
Wednesday, November 08, 2017

PARIS - FIFPro has withdrawn its complaint against FIFA and the current football transfer system after the two organisations signed a landmark agreement to enhance the game.

In 2015, FIFPro - the union that represents players, launched legal action with the European Commission, accusing FIFA of overseeing a transfer market that thwarts a level playing field among clubs and had been "tricking" football fans.

They also argued the current system failed

Philippe Piat, FIFPro president, added: "This mutual understanding has helped set in motion the biggest changes to football transfer rules since 2001.

"While clubs in the richest leagues invariably treat players well, there are other leagues in which the employment rights of footballers are routinely ignored.

"These rule changes will help protect the 60,000 players FIFPro represents against unfair treatment."
