Registration Transfer Deadline 2017

It is a common misunderstanding that there is a last date for registrations. They can be made everyday of the year.

There is however a transfer deadline which affects the eligible date of some players when moving from other clubs or from abroad.

This year it is Friday 24th February 2017, therefore all registration paperwork must be received by the following dates:

• Friday 17th February for standard 7-day
• 12 noon Friday 24th February for expedited

This means that all registration papers are present and correct by those times as any incomplete applications may result in the player missing the Transfer Deadline.

Remember the player has to complete his waiting period before the deadline to be eligible this season.

Check the regulations for who is affected by the deadline – but in essence it is any player who is or has been registered with a club this season or is an overseas player.

If registering on line you MUST have a completed and signed registration form from the player before entering him on GMS.

Player Registration Form

An updated Player Regisration form is now available on the Docs & Forms section of the website.

This should be used from now on, the previous form - Edition 21 - will cease to be valid in January 2015.

Clubs are reminded the form should be completed for ALL registrations, whether sent by post or done on line.  Clubs using the on line facility MUST retain the signed form for at least 12 months.

RFU Game Management System - UPDATED

The new player registration system is now available for clubs to use.

The login is now via http://www.englandrugby.com.

If you do not know your club's login details or have any other queries you should contact the RFU's helpdesk on 020 8831 6651.

Registrations can still be processed by post via this office.
