Players and Member Clubs are permitted to call upon the services of an intermediary during negotiations with other players or clubs provided the intermediary is duly registered with the Association in the case of local transfers and international transfers or by another national football association in the case of international transfers, and for the negotiation of professional players’ contracts.
The intermediary is a natural or legal person who, for a fee or free of charge, represents players and/or clubs in negotiations with a view to concluding an employment contract or represents clubs in negotiations with a view to concluding a transfer agreement.
In the selection and engaging process of intermediaries, players and clubs shall act with due diligence. In this context, due diligence means that players and clubs shall use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the intermediaries sign the relevant Intermediary Declaration and the representation contract concluded between the parties.
Players and clubs are forbidden from using the services of a non-registered intermediary.
