CBF and clubs agree to two transfer windows until the end of the year

A meeting between clubs and the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) has seen a decision that will majorly impact the dates of the transfer window.

Asides the upset of the football calendar, the coronavirus pandemic has also brought about some difficulties on the transfer scene.

With clubs having very limited time to secure deals especially after financial impacts, the CBF had to make changes that would balance the scale for all clubs.

Due to that, clubs and CBF met in a videoconference on Wednesday and both agreed to the term that there would be two new transfer window dates until the end of the season.

There are no officially announced dates yet, but it is expected that the beginning of the first window will open from the end of July to the end of August, while the second may be from mid-September to October.

This would give clubs the opportunity to get finances balanced as a number of sides are already complaining about lack of revenue from games in this period. Clubs already believes they would lose more players than in previous seasons and this gives everyone the opportunity to make compromises.

Finally, Aildo Rodrigues, Secretary of Sports for the State of São Paulo also confirmed on Wednesday morning that the Paulista Championship should resume between the end of July and the beginning of August.

Also, clubs would be able to start contact training in groups starting the first of July. The procedures had already been announced by Governor João Doria but there was the possibility of it all getting postponed due to the recent increase in the coronavirus numbers.

However, all of the measures are now set to stand and go on as planned.
