Wiltshire FA. Affiliation

Club Affiliation

What is affiliation?

Clubs 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 Clubs 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 club?

Affiliation is completed online using the Whole Game System.

 

To begin the process please log into the WGS.  If you need any assistance with your FAN number please contact us on 01793 486047 and we will be on hand to assist.  If you have forgotten the password assigned to your FAN, you can simply reset this HERE.
