Are you running a Tournament this Summer?

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.
