CLUB AFFILIATION FOR SEASON 23/24
We are updating the club affiliation process next season.
In response to an upgrade to the FA IT software used by County FA’s we have reviewed and amended how clubs and teams will affiliate for Season 23/24.
The main update to the process is the move away from Club Affiliation to Team Affiliation. This change will mean individual teams can affiliate as soon as they are compliant with the affiliation requirements, alleviating the issue whereby a club is prevented from affiliating until all teams within the club are compliant.
Moving to affiliation by team means if you’re a club with a first team in the National League System as well as having youth teams & disability provision, you can affiliate the first team for their earlier start and complete the youth teams when they’re ready.
Further changes to the process include the way clubs enter County Cup competitions on the system and also the Safeguarding requirements needed for each type of affiliated team (adult, youth & disability).
The new software being adopted for clubs to affiliate will simplify the process, offering more flexibility. With automated checks the system is more efficient, faster, and less of an arduous task for club officials to manage.
When the affiliation window opens next month, clubs in Wiltshire will see the ‘club fee’ has been removed and a ‘team fee’ has been introduced.
When setting the new price structure, we have conducted research and compared with other County FA’s, to ensure fees are reasonable and affordable, whilst remaining focused on our commitment to provide high quality support services to our members, across sanctions, affiliation, regulations, competition, education, football development and facility improvement.
As a not-for-profit organisation, Wiltshire FA will re-invest any additional funds generated from affiliation back into the game, continuing to support the grassroots football community..
The price structure is listed below. We also have listed some Affiliation Workshop dates aimed at supporting clubs with the change to the affiliation process and system.
When the affiliation window opens, we will share more information and FAQ's to provide further details and support on how your team can affiliate.
