Cape Town - South African Football Intermediaries Association attorney Jeff Afriat has described the three-percent commission restriction on football agents as 'unconstitutional'.
Earlier this year, the South African Football Association announced new regulations on the amount representatives could earn from their clients.
The matter went to the South Gauteng High Court where an interdict was given and the matter sent to the Review Court.
SAFIA blasted the regulation, stating it had severe consequences on the occupation of player agents.
"In our view, the 3% cap is unconstitutional because it unreasonably and unjustifiably limits the fundamental rights of agents, enshrined in the constitution; namely their freedom of trade and that no one may be deprived of property which includes one's ability to earn an income," Afriat said in a statement.
"Furthermore, the cap on agents' remuneration amounts to unlawful competition under the Competition Act.
"Accordingly, my clients will also lodge a complaint with the Competition Tribunal who will investigate this matter and make findings in this regard."
SAFIA president Mike Makaab said: "It's imperative for us to be recognized as important role players in the football industry and for our input to be treated with the seriousness it deserves.
"We have been and remain willing to sit across a table with SAFA and the NSL/PSL."
