The FIFA Players' Status Committee passes decisions (in accordance with the FIFA Statutes) on disputes between football clubs belonging to different member associations. Such disputes involve, in particular, contractual disputes relating to international player transfers. In February 2005, the FIFA Players' Status Committee ordered a Spanish club1 to pay a Brazilian club2 a certain amount of money by a certain deadline on the basis of a transfer contract concluded between the two clubs. This decision was binding.
