Wiltshire FA. Affiliation

Club Affiliation

What is affiliation?

Teams are required to affiliate each season. Affiliation is the process by which Clubs “register” with Wiltshire FA, allowing them to play affiliated football for the season. It involves telling us which teams you’ll be running, which County Cups and Leagues you will be entering, as well as key Club Officials and Team Officials involved in running your Club.

Why should teams affiliate with Wiltshire FA?

It is through affiliation that the football family is brought together and correct standards, safeguarding and discipline are maintained, it allows the us to govern the game in Wiltshire.

Affiliation acts as a quality assurance and as a safety net to help protect players, clubs, officials and administrators throughout the game.

How do I affiliate my team?

Affiliation is completed online using the Club Portal on Whole Game System.


Please ensure you have completed the following steps to start the affiliation process.

Step 1Clear all outstanding debt. You will not be affiliated until all debt has been paid.

Step 2Login to Club Portal here

Step 3Select ‘Team’ on left hand side of the page.

Step 4 This will take you to a page with all the clubs teams listed. Please ensure all teams for the 2023/24 are listed.

Step 5Ensure all team requirements are green. Any red requirements must be amended before affiliation.

Step 6Once each team is listed and the Officials, Qualifications and Team Grounds are green you must select ‘Manage Competitions’ on the top right of the page and assign each team into the correct league.

Step 7Once each team is in the correct league please select ‘Manage Competitions’ then ‘Manage County Cups’. Please select a team then press ‘Next’ to see what County Cup they can be allocated too. This process must be completed for each team as entry into the competitions is mandatory.
