How Fifa’s Transfer Proposal Can Affect The PSL

Fifa could extend the transfer window for the 2020/21 season according to a draft proposal of new regulations in light of the COVID-19.

The world football governing body has labelled the outbreak an “exceptional circumstance” in terms of altering the registration period of players now that the beautiful game has been halted completely due to the spread of the deadly virus.

As the death toll continues to rise, football around the world, including the Premier Soccer League has been suspended, and while the chairman Irvin Khoza has said the desire is to complete the season by June 30, Fifa is making plans beyond that.

The task force team will meet again tomorrow, according to a document which outlines proposed regulations to tackle the blow the Coronavirus has dealt football, and it expected that the following recommendations will be discussed further:

  • All requests for an extension of the current season finishing date be approved.
  • All requests to extend or amend registration periods that have already commenced be approved, provided that their duration complies with the maximum limit (i.e. 16 weeks) in the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players (RSTP).
  • All requests to amend or postpone registration periods that have not commenced be approved, provided that their duration complies with the maximum limit (i.e. 16 weeks) in the RSTP.
  • Member associations be permitted to amend season dates and/or registration periods, either (where our technology allows) within the Transfer Matching System or by notifying FIFA manually.

If passed, these new regulations will be welcomed by the PSL, who have been mum about the way forward since the extended suspension of the league because of 21-day nationwide shutdown in South Africa.
