Free Agent (Professional Sports)
In a broad senseFree contractIt refers to a player, but in recent years it has been used in a narrow sense to refer to a player who has a special right to transfer freely.In addition, there are two types of free agents (Unrestricted Free Agents, abbreviated as UFA) and restricted free agents (Restricted Free Agents, abbreviated as RFA), and depending on each sport or league, UFA alone or both coexist. There is.
North AmericaBehind the birth of the free agent system in professional sports is the provision based on the hold system from the 19th century (Reserve Clause) Has severely restricted the transfer of players by their free will.This was due to the fact that players were transferred voluntarily during the season, and due to the imbalance caused by excessive outflow, fans were separated and the box office became unsuccessful.Avoid competitionDerived from the conclusion of the agreement.
Later, when the reserve clause was strengthened and the team side was granted the right to hold players even after the contract period expired, the increase in annual salary due to the purpose of retaining players was suppressed, but on the other hand, the means for players to transfer was The team relinquishes the reserve (Free contract), Trading of holding rights between teams (trade) Or transfer to another athletic organization where the provisions do not take effect.As a result, the athlete has a "slave clause"The players were forced to negotiate a contract at a disadvantage, or traded like a thing for a long time, as they continued to be bound by a particular team under this reserve clause, also known as. Appeal for the abolition or improvement of the system, numerous judicial decisions andLabor-management negotiationThrough1976First of allMLBとNBAWill win the rights of free agents in.
On the other hand, there are quite a few opinions that acknowledge the validity of the hold system, and taking into consideration the recovery of funds spent on the acquisition and training of players and the replenishment and training of new forces, until the acquisition of rights. In some cases, compensation for the period and transfer is set.
Unlimited free agents and restricted free agents
You can negotiate a contract with any team with a restricted free agent (RFA), but the former team can preferentially retain players under certain conditions, or the former team will compensate when transferring teams. Refers to a player who has rules to obtain draft nomination rights and transfer fees, or the state of a player.
An unlimited free agent (UFA) is a player or player's condition that allows them to freely negotiate and sign new contracts with any team without the above special restrictions or compensation at the time of transfer.Players who have been dismissed from the team, players whose contract period has expired, players who have not been nominated in the draft, etc. are applicable.
Of the major sports in North AmericaNFL-RFA and UFA are clarified in the NBA, and when simply called "free agent", it usually refers to UFA.
In Japan, it is almost regarded as free agent = RFA and free contract = UFA.
Major league baseball
MLB during the regular seasonActive roaster(Injured listNumber of days registered in various suspension list registration period (including the period during registration)British: Major League Service time , Less thanMLS) Reached 6.000 (6 years in total) to acquire FA rights.
FA players are announced by the MLB Players Association,World seriesContracts with all teams will be possible 5 days after the end (5 days until then)Can only be re-contracted with the previous team).
According to the above rules, many teams make their major debut (with active roaster) after a certain period of time has passed since the start of the season for young promising players (top prospects) who can be the main players of the team.This is due to the speculation that by delaying the debut, MLS will not reach 6 at the end of the 6.000th year and will keep the hold right until the end of the 7th year of actual work..
Also,"Minor leagueThere is also a system called "FA"40 peopleAthletes who have been out of the game for 6 years (1032 days) will get the FA right, and after the end of the season, the players will become FA...Major contract with a player who became a minor league FAIt doesn't matter, so it also plays a role in preventing murder in minor leagues.
The meaning of free agent in MLB isJapanese professional baseball It is different from that of (NPB).Players whose contract period has expired, players who refused contract extension options and minor contracts themselves and became free contracts, players whose contracts were canceled from the team, amateur players who can freely acquire MLB teams, all of these are "FA (free) Agent) ”is expressed as a player (the Japanese translation of“ Free Agent ”is the“ free contract ”).In addition, since players who meet the FA right acquisition conditions are automatically exercised, there are no "players who do not exercise the obtained FA right" seen in NPB.In addition, players who have once acquired the FA right do not need to reacquire the right (they automatically become FA each time the contract ends).For this reason, there are many players who become FA in the off-season, and transfers by FA are more active than in NPB.
The team that has the main players who will become FA in the near future is exposed to the competition for acquisition with other teams after FA, and carries the risk of losing the ownership of the players.As a countermeasure, send the player to a team that needs further immediate reinforcement.tradeHowever, in return, players and money may be earned.Virtually especially in the middle of the seasonPost seasonIn the lower team that dropped out of the competition, how many promising young players can be pulled out by using the main players of the own army close to FA as trading personnelGMIt can be said that it is a showcase for your arm.
The origin of the free agent systemMajor league baseballIn (MLB).1975ToMontreal Expos OfDave McNallyPitcher andLos Angeles Dodgers OfAndy MessersmithThe pitcher is dissatisfied with the contract terms presented by the team and does not sign the contract (retention clause)After playing one season with the same team (according to), he insisted that "the team has no right to detain itself and can freely negotiate contracts with other teams."

FA by contractual exception
As mentioned above, it takes at least 6 years for a player who has signed a contract with MLB for the first time to acquire the FA right.However, there are cases where the contract includes a clause that becomes FA when the contract period expires.Many Japanese players who challenge MLB through Nippon Professional Baseball have also become FA without satisfying the conditions for MLS 6 years by incorporating such provisions...However, this is just a convention for players who have achieved results in overseas professional leagues such as Japan, and if the FA clause is not included in the contract, it will take at least 6 years to obtain the FA right as a general rule.As an example of not including such a clause and not becoming FA after the contract expiresHideki OkajimaThere is..Also, as an example of not joining the contract as a dissatisfaction with a contract that does not include such a clauseHiroyuki NakajimaThere is.

Japanese professionalbasketballThen.bj leaguePlayers who meet the conditions set by the bj league and who have the right to conclude a player contract with any team including the previous team are called free agents and are given that right.systemIs called a "free agent (FA) system".In many cases, the right is exercised with the possibility of transfer being included on the premise of remaining, but there are also cases where the contract expires (dismissal) due to the exercise of the right.Therefore, unlike Nippon Professional Baseball, employment is not always guaranteed.
More than 80% of matches in a regular seasonPlayer registration(Bench registration), players will be entitled to free agents when the cumulative number of seasons reaches 3 seasons.However, if there are seasons in which the number of registered players is less than 80% of the regular season, the total number of registered players in those seasons will be added up, and the one that reaches 80% will be calculated as one season.In addition, in the case of transfer (trade), the results of the transfer source team and the transfer destination team are totaled.
After the end of the regular season, the players who have acquired the rights will be announced by the bj league, and the announced players will bePlayoffWithin the declaration period from the end (Draft meetingApproximately one week before), after declaring the exercise of FA rights to the bj league through the team to which they belong, negotiations will be possible from the next day (1 was stipulated until just before the draft meeting).
In order to reacquire the FA right of a player who has been announced as an FA declared player, it is necessary to register 2% or more of the participating players for two seasons regardless of whether they remain or transfer.If the right is not exercised, it will be carried over to the next year.
From the 2009-10 season, temporary ownership rights for foreign players will be granted, so FA rights similar to those for Japanese players will be granted.
Constraints and compensation in FA
In addition to the annual salary, FA-declared athletes are allowed to pay a lump-sum payment that is not covered by the salary cap.The upper limit is 50% of the previous year's basic remuneration.
Number of people won
Up to 10 players from each team can sign a player contract for the following year with FA players who were enrolled in other teams until the previous season. Players who belonged to the team before the FA declaration are not included in this.
The team that has acquired the FA player pays compensation to the transfer source.The amount is calculated based on the number of seasons enrolled at the transfer source, and the basic remuneration at the transfer source or the basic remuneration at the transfer destination is multiplied by the coefficient in the table below to obtain the higher amount.
In 2008, 50% of the previous year's basic remuneration was paid uniformly.
