International Transfer Certificate

Rather like a credit card, no player can leave home without one. They are issued by Football Associations and without an ITC a transfer cannot go ahead.

Obviously this creates an issue in the rebel Liga Primer Indonesia. Not being registered with the local FA, obviously the LPI cannot start issuing or requesting ITCs as other FAs are gonna ask Wo Are Ya?

Forget deporting players, this is the LPI's Achilles heel. Foreign players need one and, for example players like Pierre Njanka and Shahril Ishak, who have left the official Indonesia Super League for the LPI, their registration probably still lies with the FA.

When an LPI player moves to an official league, the FA there will request the ITC from the Indonesian FA. Then things could get very interesting.
