A-League transfers a must

-

For many years fans have grown tired of the ‘player recycling’, as players go from club to club in the A-League.

One way to combat this, and to ensure clubs get their fair share, is to introduce a transfer market in the A-League.

The current model means that if a player wishes to leave their current A-League club for a new one, there is no transfer fee between the clubs. Instead, the original club are often forced or coerced into releasing their players and the new club get a brand new player without having to spend a cent. They can even head straight to an Online Casino USA with all the money they have saved.

The point is a transfer system within Australian football is crucial.

It will more than likely stop players jumping from club to club, and it will incentivise teams to actually invest in their youth development if they know they can make a pretty penny from a transfer, as opposed to having them pinched for free by another club once they’re at a decent level.

It’s also important that we introduce transfers from A-League clubs to our National Premier League (NPL) clubs, too. The NPL has been hit the hardest by COVID-19 with many clubs losing sponsorship or withdrawing from competitions all together (Sutherland Sharks in NSW NPL 1 for example). Perhaps they need to visit newzealandcasinos online pokies to make up their lost money.

By having a proper transfer economy in Australian football, it will help with funding youth development and that will in turn help fund Australian football as a whole. More youth development and better pathways will ensure a better National Team, right?
