3. Wrong, fake, unreadable documents in their application, SHALL be rejected in the system.

5. All transfers both domestic and international must be done in the TMS before registration can be completed in the registration system.

6. Clubs are to ensure that they check the player’s name in the system, before registering a player as a new player and taking full responsibility and consequences for the new registration.

7. Club that refuse to release an amateur player to the new club, the GFA shall release the amateur player to the new club to ensure smooth registration of such a player.
