Today FIFA released its annual Global Transfer Report summarizing all of the transfer data they gathered in Women’s soccer throughout 2022. The biggest takeaway from the report is the continued growth and investment in women’s soccer globally as seen in the increase in total transfers, fees around the transfers, and clubs involved.
There were a total of 1,555 transfers and 500 clubs involved throughout the world up from 1,303 and 410 in 2021. The main activity throughout the year happens from July to September, reflecting the European off-season and mid-season trade window for the North American leagues. The secondary peak occurs in the January trade window, which is mid-season for most European leagues and right at the start of North American leagues returning from the off-season.
