Some fresh trouble has come up regarding Premier League Soccer due to IFA’s inability to register the franchisees under any footballing governing body. They were not registered under AIFF or IFA but strangely they were issued TMS (Transfer Matching System) passwords and IDs which are used to login to FIFA’s TMS site.
