In recent weeks, the football world was abuzz with the news that Fayza Lamari, the mother of star player Kylian Mbappé, might step down as his agent due to FIFA’s new regulatory measures. These measures, aimed at restructuring the landscape for football agents, introduced mandatory single licenses and imposed limits on commissions and multi-representation.

Twist in the tale

However, a twist in the tale emerged as FIFA reconsidered its stance, ultimately knocking down some of the contentious regulations for the time being. This turn of events means that Kylian Mbappé’s mother will continue to represent him as his agent, at least until the resolution of an ongoing appeal process.

A few months back, FIFA had announced significant changes in the realm of football agents. The requirement for a single and official license for each agent was one of the major alterations. Additionally, there were restrictions on commissions and the practice of representing multiple clients. To obtain the license, aspiring agents had to pass a rigorous exam, with the first licenses granted after calls in April and September, totaling more than 4,500 across Europe.

Change in rules

The most critical aspect of these changes was the imposition of limits on commissions. However, in a surprising development, FIFA has decided not to enforce this particular regulation in the upcoming transfer market. This decision provides temporary relief for agents who would have otherwise been bound by commission constraints, although the need for a license to negotiate with clubs still remains.

The football community now eagerly awaits the outcome of the appeal process, which is expected to conclude in the first half of 2024. The appeal holds the key to whether the rolled-back regulations will be reinstated or if further adjustments to the agent landscape will be introduced. The fate of Kylian Mbappé’s representation, along with numerous other agents and players, hangs in the balance as the football regulatory drama unfolds.
