Wrexham AFC can confirm a request was made to FIFA, to consider the competitive disadvantage suffered by the Club, as a result of being a Welsh Club playing in the English pyramid and in a domestic competition (National League - Step 1) which isn’t required to observe Transfer Windows/Registration Periods.
Having considered the case put forward by the Club, FIFA have granted dispensation for the 2022/23 season from the relevant regulations, to ensure equal treatment with the other Clubs competing in the National League and protect the integrity of the competition.
Wrexham AFC will therefore be able to register players up to the fourth Thursday in March, with the same freedom as other Clubs in the National League.
The dispensation for 2022/23 will allow time for a permanent solution to be identified with the National League for 2023/24 onwards.
The Club would like to thank FIFA, The FA of Wales, and the FA, for their support in achieving this positive outcome.
