The FIFA Council met in advance of the 72nd Ordinary FIFA Congress in Doha, Qatar, and adopted new regulations concerning the loan of players in international football.

The meeting, which was in a hybrid format as some members were unable to attend due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, marked the first time that the FIFA Council met in person since 24 October 2019.

These regulations, which are based on the recommendations of the FIFA Football Stakeholders Committee to facilitate the development of young players, promote competitive balance and prevent the hoarding of players by clubs, were approved.

They will come into force on 1 July 2022. The FIFA Council also extended the mandate of the existing normalisation committee for the Ivorian Football Association until 30 April 2022 and appointed a normalisation committee for the Namibia Football Association until 30 April 2023.
