To prevent child exploitation, FIFA prohibits the international transfer of minors – i.e. players under the age of 18. There are however a small number of exceptions to the rule, which are regulated and overseen by FIFA. The Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players (RSTP) sets out the applicable law, and the FIFA’s Players’ Status Committee (PSC) Sub-committee reviews and approves (or rejects) the applications for the international transfer of minors.
To help stakeholders better understand the process and the detailed documents required to support applications for the international transfer of minors, FIFA has developed a ‘Minor Application Guide’ (Guide) to supplement the RSTP.
