Change the football club? This is how it works!

Changing football clubs is not as easy as it sounds, even in amateur football. There are also change periods, deadlines and formalities to be observed. But don’t worry, we have the most important facts for a smooth transfer to a new club:

Deadlines and transfer window for amateurs

In amateur football, it is not the DFB that is responsible for the regulations, but the relevant regional or state association. Despite this, there are some similarities between amateurs and professionals. First of all, the change period in which a transfer is possible is important.

A transfer to a new club is possible in summer between July 1 and August 31 and in winter between January 1 and 31. So keep in mind to deregister from your current club in time! You must deregister before June 30 if you wish to change clubs in the summer at the start of the new season. In general, you can deregister online or per post.

What happens if you deregister after June 30?

You missed the deregistration deadline and only deregistered after June 30? Your transfer may still work out. If your last match was six months ago or even longer, you can change clubs at any time and are immediately allowed to play.

But: There is no standard rule among the regional associations whether the last match refers only to competitive matches or also to friendly matches. In case of doubt, it is better to ask.
