Amendment to the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players

At meetings held on December 18 and 19 2014, the FIFA Executive Committee approved new provisions concerning third-party ownership of players’ economic rights (TPO) and third-party influence on clubs, which will be included in the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players.

These new provisions implement the decision to ban TPO, passed by the Executive Committee at its meetings on September 25 and 26 2014.

The amendments to be added to the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players in this respect are made to article 18 (18bis is slightly amended and a new 18ter is added) and a definition of “third party” has been included.

Below is a brief description of the amendments made to the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players which, broadly speaking, except where specified otherwise, will enter into force on January 1, 2015.
