About $400 million each year should be paid through FIFA Clearing House, which is set to launch next year. FIFA says the winning tender must ensure compliance with "anti-money laundering laws and checks for sanctioned countries."
Creating an efficient payment system is part of FIFA's wider plan for its first major transfer market reform since 2001. The governing body of soccer is inviting tenders from companies who can operate the scheme under FIFA's control.
