Important changes to The FA’s Regulations on Intermediaries
As spending rose ever higher during the 2017 summer transfer window, The FA has been busy making some important changes to its Regulations on Working with Intermediaries1 (Regulations).
The most important changes were the introduction of the following new Regulations:
B11 - An Intermediary shall only enter into a single Representation Contract with the same Player at any one time.
B12 - An Intermediary shall not enter into a Representation Contract with a Player under an exclusive
Representation Contract with another Intermediary.
B13 - A Player shall not enter into a Representation Contract with an Intermediary whilst under an exclusive Representation Contract with another Intermediary.
G3 - An Intermediary should use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Organisation through which he operates shall comply fully with the requirements of the Rules of The Association and these Regulations in relation to any Intermediary Activity carried out by that Intermediary.
