FIFA Clearing House

Training rewards intermediary payment institution

Solidarity mechanism and training compensation

The establishment of FIFA Clearing House SAS (FCH) is a key element of the transfer system reform package adopted by the FIFA Council in 2018 in order to promote and protect the integrity of professional football.

FCH is a payment institution established in France that acts as an intermediary in payments relating to training rewards (solidarity mechanism and training compensation) deriving from articles 20 and 21 and Annexes 4 and 5 of the FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players (RSTP). FCH ensures that payments by new clubs are correctly distributed to training clubs. The payments are based on the final electronic player passport (EPP) and allocation statement approved by the FIFA administration.
