Football Association of Malawi (FAM), has set April 13, as a dateline for the completion of registration of players into the Domestic Transfer Matching system (DTMS).
Clubs Licensing and Compliance Manager for FAM, Casper Jangale, has confirmed the development saying any transfer that will go beyond this date will not be entertained.
Jangale said: “We did inform the clubs to ensure that all the transactions that took place outside the system should be completed in the system by April 13, which they have promised to do.”
“We can say from the look of things that 70-80 percent of them are already in the system, they just have to complete one or two things then we will confirm as well as approve the transfers.”
When asked on whether the teams have capacity to comply with the system, Jangale said FAM has already trained the clubs on how to use the system “so we are very much assured that they are conversant with the system and we will continue to offer support wherever the need arise to ensure that they are abide by the regulations”.
FAM rolled out DTMS in 2017 after realizing that the initial initiative which was manually conducted had loopholes which led to clubs’ failure to comply with the transfer window.
Through DTMS, players are cleared using the internet.
