1. GENERAL PRINCIPLES AND DEFINITIONS

  1.1 TRANSFER FEE

When a player is required to obtain an International Transfer Certificate (ITC), then both National Federations - Federation of Origin and Receiving Federation - may ask for the payment of a transfer fee for transfers - hereinafter “the Fee”.

The Fee shall be understood as the fee for administrative costs and investments made by National Federations.

The Fee shall be the only fee asked by National Federations and their members for a player’s ITC with the sole exception of a player under contract with a previous club at the time of the transfer.

The Fee calculated is a maximum financial amount for a player’s transfer between two National Federations under the authority of the CEV. National Federations may define other financial amounts which however should not exceed the amounts determined by the CEV and should not change the method of calculation defined under the provisions of this regulation. (click here to see Calculator)
