The FIFA Football Stakeholders Committee took further steps to reform the transfer system with the establishment of a new system for training rewards and, as of July 2020, the introduction of limits on player loans to ensure that they have a valid sporting purpose for youth development.
The committee endorsed the establishment of a fund to partly finance the payment of training compensation. The fund will be financed by an additional 1% levy on transfer fees. The modernised system will encourage and reward the training efforts of clubs and, as payments become automated via the new FIFA Clearing House, will ensure that training compensation is paid, which has often not been the case.
Following approval on the principle, a consultation process was started with stakeholders to agree on concrete parameters for the categorisation of clubs and calculation of training costs before the proposal is submitted to the FIFA Council with a view to coming into force in 2022.
