TFF announces commencement of 2021/22 transfer window

THE domestic season may feel as if it has only just closed, but clubs in the Vodacom Premier League, First Division League, Second Division League, and the Mainland Women’s Premier League can now start planning for next season, with the transfer window officially open.

Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) information officer, Clifford Ndimbo.

Monday marked the official opening of the transfer window ahead of the 2021/22 season as clubs look to formally register new signings.

Clubs will have five weeks to complete their signings, with the window closing at midnight on August 31.

The Tanzania Football Federation (TFF), when announcing the details for the transfer window, revealed that clubs should strictly adhere to the dates as no extension would be granted to complete registrations.

The TFF full statement issued by the Communication Department, read: “The registration and transfer window for Vodacom Premier League (VPL), First Division League (FDL), Second Division League (SDL) and Women’s Premier League (SWPL) for the 2021/22 season has officially opened on July 19, 2021, and will close on August 31, 2021.”

The statement stated: ''Clubs are urged to register and complete their international transfers within this period.''

''In case of any challenges communications should be channeled to the TFF Competition Department.''

''There will be no extension period granted after the closure of the transfer window.”

Though several transfers have been confirmed already, clubs will now officially be able to register their new acquisitions for the new season.

Dates for the start of next season are yet to be confirmed but rumours suggest the Premier League is set to start in early September.

In 2017, TFF adopted a new registration system, the FIFA Connect, to replace the FIFA Domestic Transfer Matching System.

The FIFA Connect is a global football stakeholder registration program that gathers data from every corner of the footballing world.

It is aimed at integrating football data from bottom to top.

The FIFA Connect is an online platform for player transfers between clubs affiliated in the same association, in this case in Tanzania.

It enables local clubs to manage and monitor their domestic transfer activity, generate statistics and reports.

It, moreover, helps the outfits speed up the transfer process and store required documents online, safely.
