Zambia FA fined by Fifa for breaking transfer rules

Fifa

The Zambian Football Association (FAZ) has been fined by Fifa for breaking international transfer rules.

Fifa said on Wednesday it had fined FAZ $56,000 for allowing deals involving three professionals and five amateurs without the correct paperwork and outside the official transfer period.

A trio of Zambian clubs were also punished.

Zanaco FC were fined $22,500 for transferring a professional player, while while Power Dynamos and National Assembly both received a $25,000 fine for deals involving amateurs, and for failing to cooperate with a Fifa enquiry.

Fifa toughened its international transfer information rules in October 2010.
