Why Chiefs Can Register New Players – This Season!

Kaizer Chiefs can still register new players during the 2020/21 season, but the conditions for that to happen are cautiously laid out in the rule book.

The Glamour Boys were hit with a two window ban by FIFA as far back as February, meaning they would not be allowed to add fresh faces to their roster during the current campaign – a decision the club appealed to have it reversed.

But on Tuesday, Chiefs were dealt a further blow when the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) issued a statement that it had dismissed this appeal and that the sanction by the world governing body for Amakhosi not to register new players for two successive transfer windows would then be upheld.

Chiefs can, however, still find a way to boost coach Gavin Hunt’s squad before the end of the season if the NSL handbook guidelines on registering free agents is follow down to a tee.

FIFA had ordered that Amakhosi not register players in the two transfer windows of the 2020/21 season, which is currently underway.

Initially, those dates would have been between 1 July 2020 to 31 January 2021, but due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Premier Soccer League made adjustments to both transfer window periods by amending the first one to 22 September until end of November and the second beginning 1 February and ending 1 March 2021.

The following rule applies to registering free agents outside the window period:

  • A player who was not under contract with any club at the time that the previous registration period closed.
  • An amateur player who has a clearance certificate.
  • A player who has been declared a free agent.


Chiefs have three players who fall under this category already training at the club and understood to have been offered employment contracts – so if these guidelines are followed, the trio (in the gallery above) can be registered from 2 March 2021.
