Contrary to what the Norwegian entrepreneur predicted, agents of the first English club arrived in Norway to reclaim the players sold to the second English club. This caused the second English club to write to FIFA, asking the organization to ban the Norwegian entrepreneur and exclude the first English club from the Champions League and from participation in the player transfer market.

The existence of these agents makes the sports sector less transparent and more difficult to monitor. In addition, agents (licensed or not) have formed a closed community, which makes it difficult to verify transactions conducted by them. FIFA adopted a Regulation on the Players’ Agents on May 20, 1994, which was then modified in December 1995, revised again on October 29, 2007, and has been made effective since January 1, 2008. This document clarifies that the FIFA agent would be empowered, only through obtaining a license, to care and to act on behalf of players and/or clubs for player transfers anywhere in the world.
