FIFA TMS Global Transfer Market 2017


Today, FIFA TMS launched its Global Transfer Market Report 2017. It examines official international transfer figures for the six confederations in 2016.

The report shows that the total number of international transfers reached a new peak last year, with 14,591 deals completed, surpassing the 14,000 mark for the first time ever. This is almost a thousand transfers more than the previous year, when there were a total of 13,601.

At USD 4.79bn, spending on transfer fees also reached a new high in 2016, with a 14.3 per cent increase from the previous year, the largest increase since 2013. Although clubs spent almost USD 5bn in 2016, a new record high, only 14.4 per cent of all worldwide transfers involved the payment of a fee.

The report also reveals that 879 transfers occurred between countries that had never before completed a single transfer together since the introduction of the International Transfer Matching System (ITMS) in 2010, with new transfer streams being created and old relationships remaining strong.



The conference of the Economics of Leisure, Culture and Sport will be held in Gijon (Spain) at Laboral, Faculty of Commerce, Tourism and Social Sciences Jovellanos, 2017, October 6-7 (Friday and Saturday).

Individuals are invited to submit unpublished communications related to the topic of the Conference.

All of the submissions will be assessed by a scientific committee.

Accommodation and meals during the conference are the responsibility of the organization. The participant fee is 150 euros.
