The English Football association has also been hit with a fine and given six months to improve practices surrounding the acquisition of minors.

FIFA has banned Chelsea from signing new players in the next two transfer windows after breaching rules relating to the registration of players under 18.

An official statement released by FIFA reads: “The FIFA Disciplinary Committee has sanctioned the English club Chelsea FC and the Football Association for breaches relating to the international transfer and registration of players under the age of 18.

“Chelsea was found to have breached art. 19 of the Regulations in the case of twenty-nine (29) minor players and to have committed several other infringements relating to registration requirements for players.

However, the club also breached art. 18bis of the Regulations in connection with two agreements it concluded concerning minors and which allowed it to influence other clubs in transfer-related

This ban applies to the club as a whole – with the exception of the women’s and futsal teams – and does not prevent the release of players.

“Additionally, the club was fined CHF 600,000 and given a period of 90 days to regularise the situation of the minor players concerned.”

In addition, the English FA has also been sanctioned, although both parties will be able to contest the decision with FIFA’s Appeal Committee.

Unfortunately, “the Football Association was also found to have breached the rules in connection with minors,” the statement continues.

“It was fined CHF 510,000 and given a period of six months to address the situation concerning the international transfer and first registration of minors in football.

“The protection of minors is a key element in FIFA’s overall regulatory framework relating to the transfer of players and effective enforcement of these rules is paramount, as also confirmed on various occasions by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

More so, “the decisions granted by the Disciplinary Committee were notified today and can be contested before the FIFA Appeal Committee.”
