The Transfer Law in German Professional Football and the Influence to Transfer Market
and Sebastian Block LL.M. (BIFID e.V.)
Since the middle of the 90s, the development of transfer prices has taken on ever greater proportions. Even before the Bosman ruling, football players had to fear for the release of the club and the associations in the event of a change of club and fear for their future in the event of a negative decision, but now the balance of power between player and employer has balanced itself again. As a result of the stronger negotiating position, the salaries and market prices of the players have also risen over the years. As a result, financially weak clubs in particular, which do not have the financial capacity, are becoming increasingly marginalised in sporting terms. These clubs in particular have the opportunity to make a profit from the high transfer prices, at least on the revenue side, provided they have a good and active talent factory.
