The mid-season Fiji Football Association’s Transfer Window will be opened from February 1-15.

Fiji FA chief executive officer Bob Kumar said the transfer window would be for 15 days.

“Districts and clubs who wish to register or transfer new players may do so,”Kumar said.

He said it was a FIFA requirement and has to be complied with.

“If a player is not transferred within the transfer window period, he will not be able to play for another district in the current season.”

Kumar said members were also advised to follow the procedures.

“Fiji FA will only process the transfers on receipt of proper documents. This includes  the original district transfer certificate approved and signed by district president/ secretary and accompanied by a completed player license form also signed by the player and a district official.”

Kumar added the form must contain the relevant details of the player to enable updating of the database.

“It is noted that towards the end of the window period, many players submit a letter allegedly being copy of letter sent to the districts, but no confirmation of receipt by the clubs or districts.

“Such letters with no proper address and so on will not be accepted. All application must be submitted with an application fee of $25, without which the application will not be considered. All necessary documents must be submitted within seven days of application.

“Applications received on the last day of the window will lapse after seven days if full documents are not received prior to the end of the seventh day– that is by February 22.”

All original forms must be lodged with appropriate fee.

Forms received through fax without fee will not be processed. All faced documents must be confirmed by original documents, sent either by post or courier.

Meanwhile, Kumar has urged districts which have not submitted their fact sheet with the names of clubs,  officials must do so by emailing along with their phone contact as well.

“This will allow Fiji FA to send the copies of the transfer schedule to respective clubs as well to enable the clubs to follow up,” Kumar said.

“All cases where clubs or district associations are not in a position to approve transfers must be reported to Fiji FA within seven days with reasons for refusal.”

This will be the last chance for Ba and Rewa to strengthen their brigade for the OFC Champions League.
