Player registration

Online player registration is here. 

As part of a commitment by The FA and County FAs to improve the administration experience for grassroots football volunteers, new online player registration functionality has been introduced into the Whole Game System (WGS).

Player Registration through the WGS in 2018 saw a record number of individuals registered, with over one million being completed by the start of November. This includes 60% of all affiliated football now uses WGS Player Registration.

Even if your League does not use Player Registration on WGS, clubs can still manage their online registration through the system. See below the benefits that WGS Player Registration can bring across the board for Grassroots Teams. 

Check out this Guide for more information on the Player Registration process.



Frequently asked questions about Player Registration

It is not mandatory, however your league may wish to adopt the system in the coming seasons so completing it now would save you the time and effort of completing it in the future. Player Registration has been implemented to help make online administration (on processes such as discipline) easier, so we would always encourage clubs to start the process as early as possible.
The FA offer weekly newsletters and webinars to help guide clubs through the process. You can also access the Player Registration guide here.

We're always available to help you through the process too. So if you have any questions, feel free to get in touch and we'll do our best to support you.
