Fifa Rules

Recommended Posts

The SPL/SFL/SFA have signed up to abide by the rules laid down by FIFA.

Yet they seem hell bent on disregarding them on Friday 13th!




From FIFA’s Rule Book ( the capitals are mine!)



9.1. – A clubs entitlement to take part in a domestic league championship shall depend principally on sporting merit. A club shall qualify for a domestic league championship by remaining in a certain division or by being promoted or relegated to another at the end of a season.




Altering the legal form or company structure of a club to facilite its qualification on sporting merit and/or its receipt of a licence for a domestic league championship, TO THE DETRIMENT OF THE INTEGRITY OF A SPORTS COMPETITION IS PROHIBITED. This includes, for example changing the headquarters, CHANGING THE NAME OR TRANSFERRING STAKEHOLDINGS BETWEEN DIFFERENT MEMBER CLUBS. Prohibitive decisions must be able to be examined by the Members body of appeal.
