Pre Contract Agreement Football

The legal framework is changing, but legal practices have not kept pace. This does not mean that there are no legal guidelines for determining when a preliminary contract between the parties is binding and applicable in the event of an infringement. In CAS 2015/A/3953 – 3954, the panel defined the most important elements that a preliminary contract must contain to be enforceable: but what is a preliminary contract, and players can only sign it with foreign clubs? In 2005, Italian roma secured a one-year transfer deal from FIFA, starting on 1 July, when French centre-forward Philippe Mexes joined the club in September 2004, while still under contract with Auxerre. [272] [273] In December 2005, the ban was reduced at the request of the CAS, which ended after the transfer window in January, but the CAS confirmed that Roma had “not only encouraged Mexes to break his contract with Auxerre, but was actively causing the break”. [274] At the civil level, particularly with regard to Swiss law, since the law often applies to CAS l(art) proceedings. R45 and R58 of the CAS code), the principle of contractual freedom is fundamental. It follows from contractual freedom that, in principle, everyone can participate in contract negotiations and terminate them without any responsibility. The draft employment contract covered an annual salary of 550,000 euros for two sports seasons, from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2016, and that “both parties will sign an official contract after the [player] has passed the medical in China. The other articles and details of the official treaty are decided by both parties through friendly negotiations. In addition, the CAS noted that, although it agreed with the Democratic Republic of Congo that certain employment contracts could not be conditional on the success of a medical test, it did not understand why a “pre-contract” could not be conditional on the success of a medical test; The CAS found that “it is not unreasonable for the players and the club to want some kind of security in the form of a “pre-contract” before the player comes to China to undergo a medical examination.” Although this was the case, the panel found that the project could not be equated with a “final/definitive employment contract”.

In April 2009, the Swiss team Sion was informed by FIFA that they could not sign players before the 2010 season, as punishment for the employment of Egyptian goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary of the Egyptian team Al Ahly in 2008 before the expiry of his contract. In 2011, UEFA threatened to ban all Swiss teams from European competition[275][276] and ordered the decision. [277] Zion eventually got a 36-point strikeout. [278] [279] On the day of the August 2006 transfer, West Ham United made a “great coup” by hiring Argentine World Cup stars Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano from Corinthians. [38] [39] West Ham`s official press release states that Tevez and Mascherano were “signed against an unspecified fee and put on paper with indeterminate contracts,” but “all other aspects of transmissions remain confidential and undetected.” [40] Mystery immediately covered the transfer to whom the rights of the players belonged[41] and up to three years later, when Tevez signed for Manchester United. [42] [43] [44] In March 2007, West Ham have been charged with transfers, with the Premier League claiming that the club has breached two rules, U6 and U18, which each state that no person can participate or directly or indirectly influence the administration or administration of several clubs, and that no club can enter into a contract allowing any other contracting party to exert significant influence on its policies or on the performance of its teams. [45] West Ham escaped a points withdrawal,[46] but the Premier League imposed a record $5.5 million fine. [47] [48] Tevez was also released for the club[49] and he scored the goal on the last day of the season that kept West Ham in the Premier League.

[50] [51] Sheffield United, who left the Premier League at the end of the season, sued West Ham and eventually secured a deal worth around $20 million. [53] [54] [55] Let`s start with the basics.
