This is a list of the progression of the football transfer record in IWO wikinations and in Brunant, when measured in British pounds. The concept of transfers in football dates back to the introduction of professionalism into the sport, which took place in 1896 in Kemburg, 1899 in Traspes and 1908 in Brunant.
Football tranfers fees were only allowed from 1896, first permitted by the North Kemburg League in Kemburg. Few records exist, but goalkeeper Kenny Brown joined Locklett F.C. from Kemburg City RFC in one of the earliest transfers, for £55 in 1896.
After World War II, transfers fees would increase significantly. The first Brunanter, Alan Kings, broke Principe's record to join Atlético Alcacer for £17,000 and by 1961, the record set by Pedro Santamaría upon joining Drenthe was £30,700. James Tennant's transfer fee was £98,000 in 1966, with other bonuses making it just over £100,000 in total. The media and other league officials were in uproar over this and other high transfers, though this paled in comparison to the £988,000 fee paid by Atlético Madrid for Simon Rever in 1977. Miguel Pinto was the first player to command more than £1 million when joining Grijzestad Strijders in 1981, and Ibra El-Zein was the first to be sold for more than €10 million, in 2012.
Grijzestad Strijders is the team that has broken most transfer records (5) in 1981, 1986, 1995, 2003 and 2013 while Brunant as a whole has broken twelve records, first in 1927 and most records since 1981.
Unlike the overall transfer progression, Brunant's transfers until the 1950s were largely small, given that domestic football was at a less developed level than Traspes, Kemburg and other nearby leagues. By the 1970s, Brunanter fees for players were matching and then exceeding those of other leagues with the league vastly improving. One of the first recorded transfer fees was that of Albert Reiner, who joined C.F. de Caballete in Traspes for the equivalent of £300.
