Unfinished business? 15 years on is it finally time for further reform to the football transfer system?

The opening panel session at the Player Contracts Conference in October, organised by World Sports Advocate, provided a useful insight into the views of stakeholders and practitioners on the question of whether the current football transfer system, introduced by FIFA some 15 years ago, requires reform. The panel comprised senior representatives from the World Players’ Union, FIFPro, the European Professional Football Leagues (‘EPFL’) and the European Club Association (‘ECA’) as well as lawyers acting for clubs, players and intermediaries. Matthew Bennett, Partner at Centrefield LLP, who was a member of the Panel, provides an overview of FIFPro’s complaint to the EU Commission and a detailed analysis of the discussion had at Player Contracts.
