CAS decision in the case involving FC Barcelona
( Tuesday 30 December 2014
FIFA has taken note of the decision by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in the case involving FC Barcelona, who were sanctioned by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee for breaches relating to the international transfer and first registration of non-Spanish players under the age of 18, as well as of other relevant provisions regarding the registration and participation of certain players in organized football.
CAS has fully confirmed the decision rendered by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee which saw FC Barcelona sanctioned with a transfer ban preventing the club from registering any players at both national and international level for two complete and consecutive transfer periods. The ban will apply as from the next registration period (January 2015) as well as during the subsequent summer registration period (summer 2015). FC Barcelona have also been ordered to pay a fine of CHF 450,000 and been given a period of 90 days in which to regularise the situation of all minor players concerned.
FC Barcelona initially appealed the decision of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee to the FIFA Appeal Committee, which confirmed the decision that was subsequently appealed at CAS.
With this decision, FIFA considers that CAS has shown clear and strong support for FIFA’s efforts to protect underage players. The protection of minors is one of the key pillars of FIFA. Art. 2 lit a) of the FIFA Statutes underlines that one of the objectives of FIFA is to improve the game of football constantly and promote it globally in the light of its unifying, educational, cultural and humanitarian values, particularly through youth and development programmes.
FIFA has put in place a clear regulatory framework with regard to the protection of minors and has a specialised body (the sub-committee of the Players’ Status Committee) in charge of approving every international transfer and first registration of foreign minor players. Together with these measures, the introduction of the Transfer Matching System (TMS) has been one of the main ways FIFA has been able to monitor and control transfer and first registration of underage players, whose appropriate and stable development must prevail over purely sporting interests.
