Affiliating your Club

The 2016-17 affiliation window is now open and once again Clubs are able to complete the whole process online using the Whole Game System!

New Clubs
Prospective new Clubs looking to affiliate should contact a member of our Football Administration Team on 01603 704050 or alternatively email who will be happy to provide support and guidance to get your  new Club up and running.

Existing Clubs
For season 2016-17, Clubs can again affiliate online using the Whole Game System, removing the need to complete and post paper forms and also providing the ability to pay online by debit / credit card, although you can affiliate online but pay by cheque if you would prefer. The online system automatically rolls team details forward from one season to the next, minimising the amount of time required to complete the process.

We Are Here To Help
We hope that you will find affiliating online simple and straightforward, but to assist you at the bottom of this page you will find a Guidance Booklet that takes you through the process step by step and we would encourage you to follow this closely.

If you have any questions on any aspect of the affiliation process, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Football Administration Team who will be only too happy to help you.

Additional Team Supplement
The additional supplement of £2 per team ensures that the affiliation monies paid by each Club more accurately reflects the size of that Club, will once again apply for 2016-17. Please remember that the affiliation of 1 team is included in the Club affiliation fee and therefore the supplement is only payable by Clubs that run more than 1 team.

Public Liability Fees
The Public Liability fee for 2016-17 is £26 per Club. Each Club only has to pay this amount once, irrespective of the number of teams that it runs.

Personal Accident Insurance Fees
Due to an increase in the rate of Insurance Premium Tax there has been a small increase in the Personal Accident Fees for the 2016-17 season. Adult teams are once again able to choose between 3 different levels of Personal Accident Insurance cover.

Bronze - £62
Silver - £114
Gold - £284

Full details of the differing levels of cover provided can be found in the documents at the bottom of this page.

We would recommend that Clubs select Silver as a minimum, but you are free to choose whichever level of cover you deem appropriate. Please note that the above fees are payable per adult team and you may choose different levels of cover for different teams within your Club should you wish to do so. 

The Personal Accident fee for youth teams is £26 per team and again full details of the cover provided can be found at the bottom of this page.

Manager / Coach Details
Please note that for the 2016-17 season you are required to provide the name of the manager / coach for each of your teams at the time of affiliating. For season 2016-17 all managers / coaches of youth teams MUST have an in date FA CRC at the time of affiliation. Any team that does not have a named manager or coach with an in date CRC will not be able to affiliate.

For further information on CRC checks, please contact Ken.D'

County Cup Competitions
Please note that for season 2016-17, it is once again mandatory for all Under 19 teams to enter the Norfolk Sunday Junior Cup unless they are part of a Club that already has a team in that competition. Please check the County Cup Eligibility document for confirmation of which cup(s) your team(s) should enter.
