Regulations affecting players & clubs in different countries

Please note that the United Kingdom has 4 separate National Football Associations, and international football regulations apply between the countries that make up the UK.  Our league borders counties in England that comes under jurisdiction of the English FA, and there are clubs within 50 km who play in the English Pyramid System.  Plus, we play games on Sundays and they may play games on Saturdays. It is important you understand the following: -


Under FIFA Regulations


  1. A player 7 years of age or older cannot play for two different clubs in two different countries (e.g. England and Wales, or other country) at the same time.  
  2. A player 10 years of age or older needs to get international clearance to move/transfer between clubs in two different countries - from playing for a junior club team in one country (e.g England or any other country) to play for a junior club in Wales (or vice versa). This has changed as it used to be 12 years of age or older.
