You're just one step away from cup glory - here's what you need to know ahead of your Middlesex FA Cup Final...

It's here. Months of hard work have led to this point - a County Cup Final and your chance at adding some silverware to the club's trophy cabinet. As one of our showpiece occasions there's lots of work from our end that goes into making the final an enjoyable experience for everyone involved (regardless of the score) and whilst we'll keep in close contact with the clubs involved, we want to make sure your attention can be focused on getting the team ready for the big day.

This page has been created as your reference point for everything related to the final. Here you'll find our handy FAQ section full of the most frequently asked questions, a downloads section full of documentation you may need to complete and most importantly, contact details so you can get in touch with us with any queries.

Adult: In all sections of the Competition, players who are not registered a minimum of 28 days prior to the scheduled day of the Final Ties or who are not registered in time to play in the semi-final ties (whichever is later), shall be ineligible to play in the Final ties.

Yes, a printed programme will be available at all MFA county cup finals.

Please contact so that we can communicate with the Venue with as much notice as possible.

Yes, there will be an official photographer present at the game. Photos will be made available after the match for players, club officials and supporters to download. 
The Association will provide the actual match balls, but the club will be responsible for providing its own training footballs, which should be gathered up and placed in a bag just prior to kick off to ensure that they are not used during the game.

After the game has finished, the Official Trophy and Medal Presentation will take place. The presentation usually follows this order:

1. Match officials

2. Runners up

3. Winners

Middlesex FA provides 16 medals for each team and therefore it is important that the players who played in the final go up to receive their medals first. Any players who are dismissed from the field of play will not be permitted to collect their medal on the pitch as part of the Official Presentation Ceremony. Depending on the nature of the dismissal, an MFA official may come to the dressing room after the game to give the player his medal, but the Association reserves the right to withhold the medal if the offence is serious.

You can download our footwear guidance sheet for artificial surfaces, here.

All finalists will be contacted ahead of the match to confirm that only Players and Team Officials listed on the Team Admittance form will be granted entry to the ground and changing room areas. Clubs can communicate with MFA if they wish additional Committee members to attend the final.

Boardroom access is for MFA officials and match day refereeing officials only. Except for the Senior Challenge and Charity Cup Finals where named officials from both clubs will be granted access.

Please email and we may also be able to send passes to them, but the number is limited and, if available, will be granted for their specific use.

*This is dependent on Government and FA Guidance.
No, dark kits that clash with the black referee kit are not permitted and you will be forced to change into an alternative kit. Please also ensure that you communicate with the opposition team to ensure there is no chance of a kit clash. If there is a problem in this respect, the Away Team will be asked to change, which is in accordance with Rule 7(K) in the County Cup Rule Book. Please ensure that you bring alternative goalkeeper shirts.
Yes, there may be a limit but only those named on the team sheets will be permitted to access this area. Please ensure that this ruling is met. Those in the technical area should comply with any requests from MFA officials or the match officials. Broadly, only two persons are allowed to stand up in the technical area during the game, EVERYONE else, except substitutes warming up, MUST remain seated. Spectators are not permitted in the technical area at any time. Other than in our Youth Finals, nobody under the age of 16 is permitted in the technical area.
Whilst, of course, the Association will offer whatever assistance it can in the event of a serious injury or illness, it is the club’s responsibility to have a physiotherapist in attendance and that he/she has all the kit and equipment they need to fulfill the role. We make no stipulation of what the physiotherapist’s qualifications should be – again, it is the club’s call to be satisfied that whoever is carrying out this role is sufficiently experience/qualified.
