Solidarity mechanism

Written by

Pablo Bruera


In this paper we analyze the institute of the solidarity mechanism enshrined by FIFA in articles 21 and 22 of the Regulations of the Statute of Transfer of the Player and in annex 5 of the same. Also, we analyze the assumptions in which it operates, the requirements, some resonant cases of jurisprudence and how it is claimed in practice. We also talk about the characteristics of this institute that has often become cumbersome, expensive and difficult to apply for clubs that educate players who then become professionals. Finally, we included the adequacy of the MLS (Major League Soccer) of the United States to the regulations of the so-called "FIFA regime" and an annex, where the current regulations by FIFA are detailed.
