Foreign BC Requirements & Instructions

Prior to 10 Process

Players who were born outside of the U.S. but entered the country to live prior to their 10th birthday simply need to provide proof in order to be cleared to register with U.S. Soccer. The document being used as proof should have the player's name, a date that is prior to the player's 10th birthday, and show that the player was taking part in day-to-day life in the United States. They also need to submit a copy of their birth certificate.

First Registration Process

This international clearance process is only for players who have never been registered to a club affiliated with another national association.

U.S. Citizens:  U.S. Citizens born outside of the U.S. may be cleared to register by simply completing and signing the First Registration Form. This process is available to all players, regardless of current age and skill level.

Minors International Clearance Process

Any player under the age of 18 who is not eligible for the Prior to 10 option will be required to go through the FIFA TMS process in order to obtain their international transfer clearance.

FIFA's Regulations state that international transfers of players are only permitted if the player is over the age of 18. However, there are three exceptions to the rule:

1. The player's parents move to the country in which the new club is located for reasons not linked to football.
2. The transfer takes place within the territory of the European Union.
3. The player lives outside the country, but no further than 50km from a national border. In addition, the club with which the player wishes to be registered in the neighboring association is also within 50km of that border.

U.S. Soccer can use exceptions No. 1 and No. 3, as the second exception deals only with players in Europe.  The documentation listed below is required in order to prove a minor player qualifies for this process.

ITC Request Process

Any player over the age of 18 who has been previously registered to a club in another country cannot be registered to an affiliated club in the United States until U.S. Soccer has received an International Transfer Certificate (ITC) from the player's former association.

In order to initiate this process, the player should follow these steps:

1. Complete the 
ITC Request Form

   a. Please note the request will not be processed unless the entire document is fully completed and signed by the player.

2. Forward the form to the State Association.

Upon receipt of the completed form, U.S. Soccer will request the player's ITC from the national association with which the player was most recently registered. Once a response is received, U.S. Soccer will notify the State Association immediately via e-mail.

Per FIFA regulations, the foreign association has up to 30 days from the date the ITC was formally requested to respond, after which U.S. Soccer can issue a Provisional ITC to allow the player to be registered immediately.
