FIFA said on Friday a new "Football Tribunal" to unite its various disciplinary and dispute-resolution processes under a "single umbrella body" had started operating. The world governing body said the tribunal will, ultimately, be made up of three chambers.
The "Dispute Resolution Chamber" will decide "employment-related disputes between players and clubs" and financial issues over training.
The members of those panels have already been chosen.
The plan also calls for an "Agents Chamber", to be created after FIFA has revised its rules on agents.
FIFA estimated that the first chamber will decide "approximately 3,500 disputes per year", while the second would "rule on approximately 700 disputes and 6,000 regulatory applications" annually.
