The 2024 Summer Transfer Window and Beyond

As the 2024 summer transfer window approaches, football fans around the world eagerly anticipate the flurry of activity that is set to take place. This year, most leagues in Europe will open their transfer windows on July 1, with the deadline for closing set on Friday, Aug. 30. Unlike previous years, where deadlines have been extended due to weekends, this time the top five European leagues have decided to stick to the earlier closing date. While the general deadline is Aug. 30, other associations may opt to close their windows later.

Transfer Dealings Beyond the Deadline

Despite the closing date of Aug. 30, clubs in all leagues will still have the option to sign players as free agents after the deadline, as long as the players are not officially attached to any club at the time. Additionally, deals can be agreed upon between leagues with differing transfer window closing dates. These deals will be officially completed once the signing club’s window is open.

Looking ahead to the 2025 winter transfer window, the majority of leagues have chosen to extend the deadline to Monday, Feb. 3. While most international deals and free transfers will not be finalized until July 1, the winter window will officially open on June 14. The Premier League will close its winter window on Friday, Aug. 30 at 11 p.m. BST / 6 p.m. ET.

For LaLiga, the summer window will open on July 1 and close on Aug. 30 at 11 p.m. BST / 6 p.m. ET, with the winter window running from Jan. 1 to Feb. 3. The Serie A transfer market will follow a similar schedule, opening on July 1 and closing on Aug. 30 at 7 p.m. BST / 2 p.m. ET for the summer window, and running from Jan. 2 to Feb. 1 for the winter window.

Ligue 1, on the other hand, will open its transfer window on July 1 and close it on Aug. 30 at 10 p.m. BST / 5 p.m. ET for the summer window, with the winter window running from Jan. 1 to Feb. 3. The WSL summer transfer window is set to open on June 24 and conclude on Sept. 13. In Major League Soccer, the secondary window is scheduled to open on July 18 and close on Aug. 14.
