Wiltshire Football LeagueVeterans’ Divisions

Wiltshire Football League hopes to run two Vets Divisions next season

The Wiltshire Football League hopes to run at least two Veterans’ Divisions during the 2020/21 season, which will be regionalised - a North Wiltshire based division (Swindon) and second for Mid/South Wiltshire.

The League arranges fixtures with the aim of each team playing at least fixture once a fortnight - matches are generally 25 minutes each way with players being over 35.

The modernised playing format includes making use of 3G FTP pitches during midweek.  The League hires the venues and the home club is responsible for reimbursing the League.  The league hope to make use of three pitch slots next season -

New College, Swindon on a Tuesday night (8:30pm to 9:30pm)

Green Lane Playing Fields, Devizes on a Monday and Tuesday night (9:00pm to 10:00pm)

And, if a club has their own pitch (either 3G or grass with floodlights), they are welcome to enter and host their opposition.

The league format is 11v11 and players are registered using the FA Whole Game System whilst fixtures, referee appointments, results and tables are published on the FA Full-Time website.  All new clubs/teams will be given training and access if they are not familiar with these systems.

  • Annual League fees are £30
  • Players' Registration fees are £2 each
  • Referees' fees are £30
  • Pitch hire fees are £80 (this should only have to be paid once a month on average)
  • The League will give each Club a set of 8 water bottles plus coloured bibs for substitutes

In addition to these league fixtures, Wiltshire FA also run a County Cup Competition for Veterans' teams.
