‘Suspension’ of FIFA Football Agent Regulations – Is it All That it Seems With Circular 1873 & FFAR? – Will The Agents Exam Be Suspended? – Are Agent Disputes Heading for Litigation & the Courts?

Season 1 : Episode 25

Just when agents and others in the football world thought it was safe to think there was some certainty on FFAR (FIFA Football Agent Regulations) at least for the new transfer window, FIFA delivered a circular that has sent the football agent world into yet more confusion and bewilderment.

Yet whilst FIFA Circular #1873 has prematurely prompted celebration and euphoria for some in the football world, The Agents Angle examines if the announcement of the suspension on aspects of the hotly disputed new football agent regulations is all that it seems, or whether it is understandably causing confusion and differences of opinion.

Whilst the core issue of the cap on agent commissions/fees does seem to be suspended, the announcement on FFAR with its seeming contradictions prompts other questions and confusion.

Also, what is the impact of these changes on agents and the wider football world with many transfer windows around the world now open? – How are National Football (member) Associations to handle this latest twist in the FFAR saga, and the implementation of their own national regulations at such a busy time?
