Footballers, next to the actors and singers belong to the social group which is most admired by others. Football is a sport discipline focused on economic success and a career, and also to provide entertainment. This rat race may lead to overtraining, dependence on physical activity, diagnosed depression, eating disorders, suicide attempts, and above all, the separation from family or it makes difficult to get married. This right is experiencing significant restrictions primarily through the transfer system. Mostly, the international transfers cause footballer’s separation from the family, own culture, and prevent from building lasting marriages or partnerships. In particular, the minors players are protected, precisely because of the need to maintain their relationship with the family. However, the analysis of FIFA regulations and consequently, the regulation of Polish Football Association, shows a lack of appropriate provisions for adult players, which would protect their basic right to maintain family relationships or entering into relationships or the protection of marriage or partnership.
