The Federation launched the Medication Action Plan that coincided with the Indigenous Reconciliation Week and much to do to solve the problem, which the Football Bureau AFL and NRL have shown better in this area.

The Australian Rugby Union for short, called ARU, now seeks to move more deeply with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

“We talked a lot with the former Wallabies players, Aboriginal or Torres Islanders, and you really have a good feeling that, while I think we have made a lot of progress. In many cases, they don’t feel we are making progress, so we have to do better”.

The new Mediation Action Program will increase ARU’s relationship with the development team called Lloyd McDermott, to help Aboriginal rugby players join for the past 20 years.

There will also be a special video screened before the matches, in matches between teams in Australia. Foreign teams visiting Australia will be awarded a traditional Aboriginal cane, as a celebration.

In addition to respecting Aboriginal traditions, it can also help to achieve achievements, if not only for one generation. It is known that Ella’s brothers were famous in the football world in the 1980s, but since then, only a few Aboriginal talents have appeared.

One of the main reasons for this is the fact that the rules of competitive Rugby Games are AFL and NRL, ensuring that many Aboriginal players are in their shirt colors.

FIFA studies the transfer of juvenile players

FIFA president Gianni Infantino said the organization will consider changing regulations on transfer of adolescent players after the Chelsea club’s banning of two transfers.


Last week, Chelsea were banned from signing any player for the next two transfers because they were found guilty of violating FIFA’s regulations on signing contracts with foreign players under 18 years old. FIFA law stipulates that players aged 18 and under can only transfer to foreign countries if they meet one of the following three criteria: If the player’s parents migrate for reasons unrelated to football; Both clubs are in Europe or in the European Economic Area; and players aged 16 to 18 or players who live within a radius of 100 km from the new club.

Clubs like Barcelona, ​​Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have also been banned from transfer in recent years due to violations of the statute. And at the press conference in Rome (Italy) on 27 February, Mr. Infantino emphasized that there is a need to study carefully to renew the regulations.

Reuters cited Infantino’s statement as saying: “There are rules and regulations whether we like it or not and still have to comply when they are valid. If we don’t like them, we need to change … Maybe we should increase the minimum age across Europe, or we need to allow certain exceptions based on some clear criteria, to boys or girls may have good exercise conditions on the one hand, but on the other hand, can protect minors. That is our main priority, so this is definitely the area that we must study and continue to research in the future”.

Infantino also said FIFA intends to review the rules for the operation of the soccer. “We are planning to review regulations governing football players’ representatives because they feel the need to revise these rules to achieve better results”, he said. Current financial flows related to transfer are about 8 billion euros/year, not to mention the amount paid to the players. So I think it will only be fair if there are statutes for people involved in transfer missions, their careers clearly need to be managed. All other careers are managed and followed disciplines in Italy and around the world, so why are the agents not?”

The FIFA head added that players in the US are following stricter regulations. “Look at what’s happening in the US. The country is often taken as an example, but the United States is home to a market of economic freedom. Everything is open, people do what they want. But these industries are strictly regulated. In the United States there are a large number of books that govern transfer and change issues related to clubs and representatives. In Europe and FIFA, we have only small books, so we have some work to do…”.
