KATHMANDU, Aug 13: A meeting of A division football clubs on Friday agreed on a new set of rules and regulations on registration and transfer of players. The regulations will come into effect only after All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) endorses them. ANFA is meeting on Sunday.
The draft of Players Regulations and Transfer Act 2010 is likely to be passed by ANFA as the majority of ANFA officials are associated with the A division clubs.
According to Manamohan KC, general secretary of Jawalakhel Youth Club, they have proposed that new registration of players would be valid from August 17 to April, 2012.
As per the proposed new regulations, contract paper will be compulsory and the players need to be physically present at the club to sign the contract. The players should present citizenship certificates or passports for the contract.
Likewise, a player will not be eligible to play in any level of football tournament without taking permission from his club. Similarly, if players are found enrolled with two clubs in the current season, a decision on their affiliation must taken by August 26 on mutual agreement between the two clubs concerned. And if the clubs fail to reach an agreement, the player concerned shall choose the club with which he wants to stay.
Similarly, if a player is found registered with a club and plays from another club after taking his fees, he should pay double the amount to his club in compensation.
