International Transfer Certificates
All players that wish to play organized soccer in Canada must be registered with Canada Soccer Association
(by way of a Provincial Association’s member). FIFA’s Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players
Players registered at one [National] Association may only be registered at a new [National] association
once the latter has received an International Transfer Certificate (ITC) from the former [National]
association. (Section 9)
The procedure for applying for a first registration of a minor according to art. 19 par. 3, or an
international transfer involving a minor according to art. 19 par. 2, will be managed by TMS. (Annexe 2)The new rule has the age group requiring them moving from 12 down to 10. ***UPDATED INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER CERTIFICATE PROCEDURES DOCUMENT***
Please be aware that BC Soccer has updated its document, International Transfer Certificate Procedures as CSA recently advised us of the following rule amendment:
In order to be consistent with the March 1, 2015 change to the FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players, art. 19, par 4, the definition of a minor player will change from a player between the ages of 12 to 17 to 10 to 17.
Therefore, Canada Soccer Rule 6.5 a) will now read –
6.5 Amateur Players – Transfer - General
a) For a player who comes to Canada on or after the player is 10 years of age, the player must request and receive an international clearance from the CSA.
