As the 2022/2023 registration opens on July 1, 2022, the following directives are to be observed strictly:

  1. All queries for 2021/2022 season on club's dashboard when vetted after July 1, 2022 will revert to

2021/2022 season and therefore clubs will have to renew the registration of the players again for the

2022/2023 season.

  1. Payment of registration licenses must be made before applications are submitted for vetting otherwise such applications shall not be vetted and shall be rejected in the system
  2. Wrong, fake, unreadable documents in their application, SHALL be rejected in the system.
  3. The GHANA CARD shall be the only proof of identity for registration both renewals, transfers and new registration
  4. All transfers both domestic and international must be done in the TMS before registration can be

completed in the registration system.

  1. Clubs are to ensure that they check the player's name in the system, before registering a player as a

new player and taking full responsibility and consequences for the new registration.

  1. Club that refuse to release an amateur player to the new club, the GFA shall release the amateur player to the new club to ensure smooth registration of such a player.
  2. Club who refuses to counter instruct a transfer request in the DTMS when there is a transfer agreement, the player involved will be declared free and all the benefits in the transfer agreement will be nullified.

Once again, the Association wishes to remind all clubs to be mindful of the import of deadlines and the

strict compliance regime and the consequences thereof, following the failure to adhere to them.
