    Third-party player ownership

    Finally first step from UEFA to stop third party ownership.

    Uefa plans rule change to clamp down on third-party player ownership

    Uefa is poised to introduce new rules to tackle urgently what it sees as the scourge of third-party ownership of players in Europe as early as next season. Transgressors ultimately face the possibility of transfer bans or having players excluded from the Champions League.

    A Guardian investigation on Monday revealed that Jorge Mendes, regarded as the most powerful football agent in Europe, is serially involved in third-party ownership and Uefa, increasingly frustrated by Fifa’s inaction on the issue despite repeated vows to tackle the problem, is now drawing up new rules that could be introduced for its next three-year cycle of competition from 2015-16.

    As with the introduction of its financial fair play, there would be a transition period to allow clubs to comply with the new rules but the aim would be to clamp down on third-party ownership among clubs competing in the Champions League or Europa League.

    Now, the Uefa general secretary, Gianni Infantino, has told the Guardian that if Fifa fails to act then Uefa will take its own steps.

    “It threatens the integrity of sporting competition, it damages contractual stability, it undermines the relationship of trust that should exist between a player and the club that employs him, it creates conflicts of interests, it means that players have less control over the development of their own careers, it keeps clubs in a vicious cycle of debt and dependence and damages the overall image of football,” he said.

    “Furthermore, there is little doubt that third-party investors do influence the transfer policies of clubs even though Fifa rules expressly forbid this. These are actually the findings of Fifa’s own – detailed – research into this subject. So, it’s now time to act, and if Fifa does not address the problem, then Uefa will.”

    One key concern is the possibility that agents may increasingly have stakes in players they also represent – even though that is against Fifa rules – creating a potential conflict of interest.
    Hopefully UEFA bans the third party ownership. Also clubs should make sure they don't buy half of the player stakes as they get fuck all then the player is sold.

    Fifa is expected to make a "significant" announcement on third party ownership (TPO) on Friday, with a ban on investment companies taking a stake in the economic rights of players believed to be under consideration.

    I really wish FIFA would investigate themselves before taking a moral stance on any subject.
    Awaiting the start of our youth project.

    FIFA ruling them out completely would be interesting. I just want to watch and see how they will find the next loophole. The companies involved in this are making to much money to take their hands out the pot.

    Deportivo Maldonaldo will be loaning out more players then. These TPOs already own some clubs. I expect them to use those clubs as a proxy to send players out to teams that need them. Watch the space

    FIFA is coming down "hard" on 4 clubs for "entering into contracts that enabled a third party to influence the club’s independence in employment and transfer-related matters and failing to enter mandatory information into ITMS."

    Santos of Brazil got a 75k Swiss franc fine, Sevilla got a 55k Swiss franc fine, Twente got a 185k Swiss franc fine. Some other Belgian club got a fine as well.

    "55k swiss franc fine" What a joke. Is that supposed to mean something? It's not a deterrent and it isn't a solution so it's basically a meaningless slap on the wrist. More like a pinch than anything else.
