Original title: It was revealed that the Football Association refunded the adjustment fee due to the intervention of the State Administration for Market Regulation and dispatched personnel to visit the compliance issue
A few days ago, it was reported that the Chinese Football Association will discuss in the near future to return the transfer adjustment fee received in previous years to the club. If this matter can be finalized, then for many clubs in distress, it will undoubtedly greatly ease the team’s problems. Operating conditions.
According to Oriental Sports Daily, in September last year, Guangzhou Football Club, which was in deep wage arrears, and Beijing Guoan Club filed an application with the Chinese Football Association for a refund of the signing adjustment fee. In 2017, in order to curb the high investment of the Chinese Super League, the Chinese Football Association issued a policy of paying the signing adjustment fee. Guangzhou team, Beijing Guoan, Shenzhen team, Jiangsu Suning, Tianjin Quanjian and many other clubs have to pay signing adjustment fees because of over-qualified signings. According to some media statistics, the total fees paid by several clubs may have exceeded 15. billion.
It is reported that the Chinese Super League and the Chinese Football Association did not use these fees after receiving them, but kept these huge sums in an account. In the past two years, many Chinese Super League clubs have been in crisis due to the operating difficulties of their parent companies, resulting in wage arrears. After the parent company is “weaned”, it is difficult for the club to find business opportunities and financial support from the market. In this case, the club turned its attention to the signing adjustment fee, hoping that the Chinese Football Association can refund these fees to solve the urgent need.
According to a number of media reports, the appeals of the relevant clubs did not receive a response from the Chinese Football Association at first.Until March of this year, the State Administration for Market Regulation noticed this problem and sent staff to visit the Chinese Football Association regarding the compliance of the Football Association’s fees. Under the promotion of the relevant departments, some “charges” in the history of the Chinese Football Association were cleaned up, so there was substantial progress in the refund of the signing adjustment fee.
At present, the staff of the Chinese Football Association are working from home. It is reported that when the situation improves and employees resume offline work, the Chinese Football Association will hold a relevant meeting to make a decision on the refund of the signing adjustment fee. Judging from the current situation, the possibility of the Football Association refunding the signing adjustment fee is not small. At that time, the Guangzhou team, Beijing Guoan, Shenzhen team, etc. will receive “life-saving money”.
Taking the Guangzhou team as an example, the club has paid nearly 500 million yuan in signing adjustment fees. In the prosperous period of the Chinese Super League, the Guangzhou team invested billions of yuan a year, and 500 million yuan was only a small number for the Guangzhou team. However, in February of this year, the Guangzhou team issued the “Football Club Players Determination and Salary Standards”, which stipulated that the team’s maximum salary is 600,000 yuan before tax, and only three players in the team enjoy the maximum salary. Today, the annual investment of the Guangzhou team is only 15 million yuan, which is not as good as the annual salary of a main player in that year, which has caused many main players of the Guangzhou team to leave the team. If the “signing adjustment fee” can be recovered, it will undoubtedly greatly improve the situation of Guangzhou and other teams.Return to Sohu, see more
