Curtains have come down on a two-day FIFA Domestic Transfer Matching System (DTMS) workshop held on Tuesday, March 19, 2019, at the Strathmore Business School.
This as FKF aims to digitize all domestic transfers starting with the July 2019 transfer window ahead of the 2019-2020 season kickoff.
DTMS, the domestic version of the International Transfer Matching System (ITMS), provides the Federation and its affiliate clubs the ability to manage national and international transfers of male and female football players.
The system, which has been integrated with the ITMS, also generates transfer activity reports and has greater monitoring capacity to enhance transparency and domestic governance.
“We have had cases of double signing and conflicts between clubs during transfer windows. The process has also involved a lot of paperwork,” said FKF General Secretary Robert Muthomi.
“It is for this reason that FKF has in conjunction with FIFA invited local clubs to take them through this system, which will digitize all transfers to ensure transparency and efficiency,” he added.
The workshop brought together officials from Kenya Premier League, National Super League, and Women Premier League clubs. They were taken through the system’s fundamentals as well as the player transfer process.
