Did You Know That...
Are You Insured?
Middlesex FA have continued their partnership with UKGlobal Group to offer Clubs discounted Insurance during the affiliation process. UKGlobal provide insurance to clubs, teams, leagues and match officials with insurance products tailored to the needs of grassroots football.
Once affiliation opens later this month, everything can be completed through the Whole Game System, without a need to go externally. Making the process easier and quicker for all involved!
Are you thinking of 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.
With Player Registration on The FA’s Player Registration Portal becoming mandatory from season 2021/2022, why not get ahead of the game?
Get Organised! Whether you have used the system before or not, Middlesex FA strongly encourage all Clubs to log on (clubs.thefa.com) and clean up the data. Therefore, remove those players that no longer play for your Club.
To assist the transition, The FA have released Club Training on the New Portal to watch at your leisure!
