Fifa’s attempts to regulate agents endorsed by MEP

Fifa’s reforms of the transfer system and plans to regulate agents have been endorsed in a new political document.

A report on European Union sports policy, prepared by MEP and former professional player Tomasz Frankowski, explicitly backs what Fifa has done in this area.

The game’s global governing body is seeking to license agents and cap the fees they receive in transfer deals, and is establishing a clearing house to ensure training and solidarity payments are made and bring greater transparency to the transfer market.

Fifa’s chief legal and compliance officer Emilio Garcia Silvero said: “The European Parliament report clearly confirms that Fifa’s ongoing efforts in relation to the transfer system reform not only go in the right direction but are essential to shape the football of the future, which should be based on the principles of good governance and solidarity by all those involved.”
