UEFA become more lenient toward Roma, remove one Financial Fair Play constraint

Andy Mattioli

UEFA seem to be approving of Roma’s recent business and adherence to the Settlement Agreement.

The capital club will in fact be rewarded for having respected UEFA’s requirements over this past year.

According to Il Tempo, UEFA will become more lenient toward Roma this summer: the organization will remove one important constraint of Financial Fair Play linked to the so-called “Transfer Balance.”

In essence, in recent years the Giallorossi have had a strict limit on the costs of the UEFA list, with a balance – defined as the difference between the costs (sum of salary and amortisation) of outgoing players and the costs of incoming players – which had to be positive. A “block” that did not allow Roma to operate freely on the market.

In the agreement with UEFA it was established that the Transfer Balance would expire at the end of the 2023/24 season, applying conditionally to the 2024/25, 2025/26 and/or 2026/27 seasons.

However, the budget results fell within the objectives set by UEFA and therefore the parole will not be triggered.
