    Brexit and our league !

    So how will the Brexit affect the league ?

    With the possibility of free movement of labour ending, we might see a lot less players go over to the lower leagues in England, as it would be harder to get a work permit (Which can only be good for the league.

    Also is it possible to stop international transfers of U-18 players? Im pretty sure Brazil do this (At least in Football manager).



    Any thoughts ??

    It won't affect Irish Citizens. So I doubt there will be much change.

    LOI supporters travelling in and out of the Pale this evening should bring their passports in case border controls are reinstated.

    If the arrangements allowing Irish and British citizens to live freely in each jurisdiction continue, it could mean more chances for Irish players since Home Office rules on signing players would seriously restrict clubs from buying other young talent from abroad. In a way, I'd rather it didn't - I'd much prefer to see young Irish players staying at home for longer, learning the game here and trying their luck in other league.

    If the UK leave the EEA as well as the EU and there are no additional agreements between the nations then English clubs will not be able to sign players until they turn 18 from outside the UK.

    And Switzerland too.

    Zero chance the UK won't be in the EEA to be honest.

    Switzerland isn't in the EEA. But I agree the UK surely will be regardless of their EU status.

    It will increase the opportunities for Irish players.

    At the moment, an English club can bring in a mediocre player from an EU country to cover a postion in their squad.

    EU people are likely to be only able to work in the UK if they pass a points based test, similar to the one in Australia.

    World class players will have no problem getting a permit, but a run of the mill player from the EU?

    If anything, it will increase the opportunities for British and Irish (due to the common travel area) players.

    It is a potential silver lining to an otherwise regrettable decision (in my opinion).

    Those countries have to accept free movement of people for work as a price for being in the EEA.

    The UK wanted out of the EU because they don't want free movement of people from the EU to Britain.

    That rules them out of the EEA.
