The country’s football ruling body
becomes the first Fifa member to
implement the domestic transfer
The Nigeria Football Federation
becomes the first Fifa member body in
Africa to implement the Domestic
Transfer Matching System (DTMS).
The online platform will help the
League Manage Company and NFF to
manage its international and domestic
transfers via one system, which is
moulded on the International Transfer
Matching System (ITMS), which is
provided to over 6,500 clubs around
the world for the cross-border transfer
of players.
Aside from that, the tool will help the
NFF and its clubs in Nigeria manage
national and international transfers on
one platform, generate transfer activity
reports and have greater monitoring
levels to enhance transparency and
The NFF’s grip to the system was
facilitated by the custodians of the
NPFL, the League Management
Company (LMC).
Other Confederation of African Football
members are expected to implement the
DTMS later this year.
