Premier League players set for post-Brexit transfer criteria based on points system

All overseas players looking to join the Premier League will be subject to a points-based criteria after Britain’s departure from the European Union is finalised.

Currently, only players from outside of Europe’s single market have to meet specific football-specific immigration requirements but new regulations are required because clubs will no longer have unrestricted ability to sign players from Europe after Brexit is completed.

As reported by AP News , the FA disclosed in its annual financial report on Tuesday plans for a points-based system for the Premier League. Also, the league resisted a plan to introduce a quota, allowing each squad only 13 non-homegrown players.

The new points system will follow the current assessment for non-European players, taking into consideration international appearances, the FIFA ranking of their nation, the transfer fee being paid and the wages offered.

The FA said it was “proactively trying to mitigate and leverage” the “risks and opportunities” presented by Brexit.

“This has a potential negative impact on the number of European players entering the English game, which could result in a devaluation of the domestic rights of English competitions but could be an opportunity for the English players in the Premier League but also other leagues from the EFL to the Women’s Super League,” the FA said in its strategic report.

The FA said it was working with other soccer bodies to gain approval from the Home Office to update the Governing Body Endorsement requirements that are already applied to players from outside of the European Union or European Economic Area.
