Player Agreement Definition

A preliminary contract is an agreement of a player and an agreement to make his registration at a later date, and became better known after the Bosman decision in 1995. [242] A club may sign a preliminary contract with a player, while it is still at another club with which the player agrees to join the club at a later date, usually after the expiry of their contract with their current club. According to the Bosman decision, a player can sign a contract with a new club up to six months before the expiry of his existing contract. [243] However, FIFA does not have the power to compel member federations to apply the clause, so FIFA is only competent for international transfers to claim compensation. . . .
