Maria Patsalos discusses Post-Brexit transfer rules in City A.M.

Posted on 9 December 2020

Maria Patsalos, Partner in Immigration and member of the Sports Group, was interviewed by City A.M. on Post-Brexit transfer rules changes.

The article flags that "From January 2021, all overseas signings will have to prove their eligibility via a points system that takes into account factors including how many games they have played.

In addition, English clubs will be forbidden from recruiting foreign players under 18 and limited in how many overseas 18-21-year-olds they may sign."

The rules have got a lot easier and better for British clubs - Maria told City A.M. - The clear reason for that is, because of Brexit, we need to make sure we are still competitive. It looks complicated so it will take a little bit of getting used to. But the bottom line is this is much easier and it is a welcome change.”
