NEW ZEALAND FOOTBALL

New Zealand Football’s regulations cover procedural matters, matters of misconduct and rules for individual competitions. Aside from the Chatham Cup, rules for individual competitions (NZFC, NYL, NWL, National Age-Group Federation Tournament) change from season to season. For a latest copy of the regulations governing those competitions please contact NZ Football. Otherwise, current regulations are available below.

Please note: Many of these regulations predate the organisation’s name change from New Zealand Soccer to New Zealand Football. Any references to “New Zealand Soccer” or “NZS” should be read as “New Zealand Football.”

 

INTERNATIONAL PLAYER TRANSFERS

In accordance with the FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players (FIFA RSTP), an international clearance is required for any player aged 10 and over who wishes to register for a Club in New Zealand and has previously been registered for a Club abroad; or who is a foreign national seeking to register for the first time in this country. For full details see the New Zealand Football website.  Below is a flowchart and checklists to assist with determining if an international transfer is required.
