Yanga SC Faces FIFA Transfer Ban Amidst CAF Champions League Fallout

Yanga SC Faces FIFA Transfer Ban Amidst CAF Champions League Fallout


Following their recent exit from the CAF Champions League and amidst controversy surrounding a disputed goal, Kennedy Musonda’s Young Africans Sports Club (Yanga) has been dealt another blow with a FIFA transfer ban due to player registration irregularities.

Yanga’s journey in the CAFCL ended in disappointment, losing to Mamelodi Sundowns in the quarter-final after a contentious penalty shootout. Despite filing a formal protest over a disputed goal, the club’s efforts were unsuccessful.

Now, Yanga faces repercussions from FIFA over irregularities in player registration, enforced by the Tanzanian Football Federation (TFF).

A statement by the TFF announced Yanga’s ban from registering for transfers, citing violations of FIFA rules, particularly Annex 3 of the Regulation on the Transfer of Players (RSTP). The club failed to comply with transfer protocols, including the absence of transfer payment confirmation in the Registration System (TMS).

Yanga must now fulfill statutory requirements and provide necessary information to the Secretariat, with the matter referred to the FIFA Disciplinary Committee for further action. Additionally, the TFF has prohibited Yanga from registering local players, further complicating the club’s roster management.

This latest setback adds to Yanga’s recent challenges and underscores the need for stricter adherence to FIFA regulations in player registration processes.
