Can anyone tell me the import restrictions in European leagues, and how the league decides if a player is an import?
To start it off, the UK has 4 leagues:
1. ISL - no restriction
2. FBNL - max of 8 imports
3. ENPL - max of 4 imports
4. ELD1 - max of 1 import
In all leagues, an import is a player who was not trained in the UK. This means that the GB national team has some players who are regarded as imports when they play for a British league.
