Tournament Sanctioning

Did you know that if you run a tournament, and you don’t sanction with your Local County FA, your insurance, and those of the Clubs and Match Officials taking part would be invalid?

Summer Tournaments are common practice for Clubs to host, especially during the off-season. Middlesex FA have provided you with everything you need to get your tournament sanctioned. All the forms are editable and can be downloaded and saved to your computer before they are returned to us, making the process a lot easier for the tournament organisers to complete.

Please note: If your tournament is scheduled on or before 30th June 2022, all Clubs MUST be affiliated for the current season.

Any Competition on or after the 1st July, therefore in 2022/2023 season, all Clubs and Match Officials MUST be affiliated for the relevant season. Affiliation numbers will begin with “Y” for 22/23 season, regardless of County FA.

The FA have released a summer tournament guide, please refer to this when planning your tournament:

As we know restrictions at this point in time have been eased, however with the ever changing environment, they are subject to change. Tournaments can take place as long as they abide by all relevant Government and FA guidance in place at the time, this is particularly important for those large scale events with crowds and hospitality.

Organisers are also advised to liaise with their Local Authority when planning an event to ensure they meet all necessary Public Health requirements.
