U.S. Soccer presents youth clubs with buy fifa coins vital document; more meeting details
Youth club representatives left a meeting with U.S. Soccer on Friday feeling optimistic about their ability to procure at least some fees for their efforts in player development. The federation finally revealed the document that it says prevents American clubs from following the same FIFA protocol on training compensation and solidarity as the rest of the world, but the USSF said it would not stand in the way of youth clubs receiving those payments for players moving abroad.
Training compensation and solidarity are spelled out in Articles 20 and 21 of the FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players. Training compensation is designed to reimburse clubs for the expense of training players who go on to be professionals, while solidarity rewards the effort and incentivizes further development.
