Dutch FA Adopts Domestic Transfer Matching System

Fri 22nd May 2015 | IT & Technology

Earlier this year, the global professional football transfer market entered what looks set to be a new era when the Royal Netherlands Football Association (KNVB) became the first national FA to handle all transfers of players among its affiliated clubs, both international and domestic, centrally on one platform. 

For its January 2015 transfer window, KNVB and all professional Dutch clubs active during the window used the Domestic Transfer Matching System (DTMS), an online application designed to facilitate the domestic transfers of male 11-a-side players in professional football launched in 2014 by FIFA Transfer Matching System GmbH (FIFA TMS), a subsidiary of FIFA.

KNVB approached FIFA TMS after a number of Dutch clubs had asked their association about the possibility of having ITMS extended to their domestic market, and in November 2014, following a pilot of DTMS, KNVB made it compulsory for all Dutch clubs to use DTMS. 

Ninon Kok, Coordinator of the KNVB’s Disciplinary Department of Professional Football, said that the Dutch FA is pleased with the way DTMS is performing, and pointed to a number of benefits: “Using the system, the KNVB has a better understanding of the transfers. DTMS has proven to be safe and clubs also have full confidence in the system.”

Kok added: “With an online digital system clubs can efficiently communicate with each other. Transfers between Dutch clubs can be processed in a fast and efficient way.”
