These contracts regulate the relation between football player and the club. The decrees in the contract are precept decrees regulated by Turkish Football Federation and in compliance with compulsory legal rules.  In the event that there is no regulation, the circulars and the prescripts regulated by FIFA and UEFA should be taken into consideration, Law of Obligations shall also apply. There are some obligations of the football player and sport club that emerge from the contract. Football player’s right for salary, annual permission, social insurance and union rights are determined. Besides all these, football players are expected to play, have loyalty, comply with the rules and have debts predicted in PFFST and in the agreement. Football player can sue for transfer fee, monthly salary, fee for each football match and bonus under the right to charge. In case of any dispute, football player apply to the committees of TFF AND FIFA or apply for the right of recession. TFF Dispute Resolution Committee is authorised and exclusive competence.
