Chelsea hit with two-window transfer ban

Chelsea have been banned from making any signings in the next two
transfer windows by FIFA following a breach of regulations regarding the
registration of young players.

FIFA’s disciplinary committee has
sanctioned both Chelsea and the Football Association after it uncovered
29 cases in which the club were in breach of article 19 of the
regulations, relating to the international transfer and registration of
players under the age of 18.

Chelsea were also found to have committed several other infringements relating to the requirements for registering new players.

Blues will not be able to register new players in either of the next
two transfer windows, meaning they will not be able to make any new
signings in the 2019-20 season as it stands.

Both Chelsea and the
FA have also been fined by FIFA, with the club ordered to pay 600,000
Swiss francs and England’s governing body charged 510,000 Swiss francs.

Chelsea have been given 90 days to fix the issues with the players concerned.

The decision can be contested before FIFA’s appeal committee.
