Kenya has been chosen to host the 2017 FIFA International Transfer Matching System (ITMS) Conference scheduled to take place in May.

Confederation of African Football (CAF) Member Associations and UEFA French speaking countries will converge in Nairobi for the annual event with where Football Kenya Federation will host the two-day workshop.

The ITMS, a system developed following a two-year study commissioned by FIFA in 2005 to address concerns in the transfer market helps FIFA and local federations to oversee total transfer activity, monetary flows and the global transfer of minors.

FKF CEO Robert Muthomi termed FIFA’s selection of the federation an honour as he pledged to support their support.

“We are honored and we will remain committed to providing all the necessary advice and onsite support, vital in ensuring the event is a success,” Muthomi said.

The objective of the Nairobi workshop will be to facilitate the sharing of information, expertise and best practices among ITMS users including clubs, associations, and FIFA TMS Department.

The annual event, which is taking place in Kenya for the first time, aims to educate FIFA TMS user community (both associations and clubs) on the use of, and about any recent changes to, the FIFA TMS System.
