Limiting intermediaries’ fees and enhancing fiduciary duty

In this article, Juan de Dios Crespo Pérez and Paolo Torchetti, of Ruiz-Huerta & Crespo Sport Lawyers, examine the practical concerns with the current system enforced by the FIFA Regulations on Working with Intermediaries (‘RWI’), and how these issues enable some intermediaries to inflate their fees within the context of a player transfer with an international dimension. Juan and Paolo provide several examples of situations which could lead to increased intermediary fees, before analysing the role of intermediaries and their obligations to their clients, and concluding with a discussion on how regulations could be strengthened to enhance intermediaries’ fiduciary duty to their clients.
