RIO DE JANEIRO, Wednesday - Full central control of player transfers is less than a year away after FIFA announced Tuesday that its automated system would be compulsory from September 2010.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Wednesday - Full central control of player transfers is less than a year away after FIFA announced Tuesday that its automated system would be compulsory from September 2010.

The Transfer Matching System is already in use in more than half of FIFA’s member associations and the electronic international transfer certificates (ITC) will be introduced from Thursday for moves of professional players between clubs, FIFA said.

It added, following a meeting in Rio of its executive committee, that all transfers will have to be by ITC from Sept. 1, 2010.

“This will give transparency to all transfers and, I won’t say it will diminish but it will also coordinate the work of agents,” FIFA boss Sepp Blatter said.

The meeting also discussed the vexed question of men’s Olympic football.
