LAGOS, (CAJ News) – THE Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is the first member association (MA) in Africa to implement the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) Domestic Transfer Matching System (DTMS).

FIFA has made the announcement from Zurinch, Switzerland.

The football body said the DTMS online platform, which includes league access, would allow the NFF and the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) to manage its international and domestic transfers via one system.

It is modelled on the International Transfer Matching System (ITMS), which is provided to 211 MAs and 6 500 clubs around the world for the cross-border transfer of players.

The system will provide the NFF and its clubs throughout Nigeria the ability to manage national and international transfers on one platform, generate transfer activity reports and have greater monitoring levels to enhance transparency and governance.

Additional MAs from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) are expected to implement the DTMS later this year.

The NFF’s adhesion to the system was facilitated by the custodians of the NPFL, the League Management Company (LMC).

FIFA TMS developed the DTMS system in response to demand from MAs and clubs for a domestic transfer system based on ITMS.
