Training compensation and solidarity contribution for Brazilian transfers
Thursday, 05 July 2012 By Nilo Effori

In March 2011 the so called Pele Statute Federal Statute (n. 9.615/98 Art 29-A) established a legal means to calculate and claim solidarity contributions in Brazil.

    Nice to have more information on Brazil's domestic training compensation and solidarity mechanisms. Because Brazil is the world's largest exporter of players, I would like to know more about disputes between clubs in Europe and Brazil over FIFA RSTP Art. 20-21.

    Here in the United States we do not yet have a domestic system which allows for training clubs to benefit when their players are signed by richer clubs. It also appears that our clubs are unwilling to pay or collect training compensation and solidarity per FIFA RSTP Art. 20-21. However as American football (soccer) improves and more players leave to and arrive from Europe, surely there must be some enforcement of these provisions in the future.
