How the system works

The Transfer Online Registration System (TOR) was introduced by the DFL on 1 July, 2015. Player registrations, applications to register players and the transfers themselves now take place via this new system. Documents pertaining to the transfer of a player from one club to another no longer have to be sent or faxed to the DFL.

Previously, every player looking to move to another club had to be included on the DFL's official transfer list by 12:00 CET/11:00GMT on the final day of the window. Now, all the relevant documents must be entered into the new system by 18:00 CET/17:00GMT.
