Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has applauded TNM Super League Clubs for fully embracing the Transfer Matching System (TMS) after transacting all transfers in the just closed transfer window through the online platform.
A total of 83 player transfers, 75 of which are domestic, have been completed during the January-April window, which closed at midnight on Thursday April 30, 2020.
FAM Club Licensing and Compliance Manager Casper Jangale said it is encouraging that clubs are now using the platform, which makes it easy for both teams and regulators to trace relevant information and documents on transfers.
“Looking at how clubs have fared this time around, there has been a tremendous improvement,” Jangale said.
“At least 15 of the 16 Super League Clubs were active in the system which is encouraging to us as football regulators.
“This is the new direction of doing transfers because the TMS and Mpira Connect platforms are now mandatory,” he said.
There were eight international transfers with five transferred out and three coming in.
The domestic transfer window is scheduled to re-open on August 1 but Jangale said the date might change because FIFA has arranged meetings with member associations to discuss football regulatory issues in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“FIFA will guide us on the way forward through a teleconference meeting which has been scheduled for Thursday this week.
“We are going to discuss some regulatory issues including transfer windows. We hope that the guidance will be beneficial to Malawi football,” Jangale said.
