FIFA has published a new statement related to foreign players and coaches who are on contracts with clubs in Ukraine and the Russian Federation.

Due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the International Football Federation (FIFA) extended the right to suspend contracts for legionnaires from the championships of Ukraine and the Russian Federation.

About it informs official website of the organization.

“Foreign players and coaches will have the right to suspend their employment contracts until June 30, 2023. The FIFA Council Bureau has decided to extend the temporary employment rules set out in the Player Status and Transfer Regulations (RSTP) in order to effectively assist players, clubs and coaches,” FIFA said in a statement.

These innovations, according to FIFA, give players and coaches the opportunity to train, play and receive salaries while protecting Ukrainian clubs and facilitating the departure of foreign players and coaches from Russia.
