Affiliating Small Sided Tournaments...

In order to comply with FA Regulations all football played in Norfolk must be affiliated, including small sided football competitions such as Summer tournaments.

To affiliate a small sided competition, the necessary documentation needs to be completed and returned to County Headquarters.

Copies of all of the relevant forms can be found at the bottom of this page, together with helpful guidance notes that will hopefully provide all of the information that you require to get your tournament affiliated.

It is mandatory for all small sided tournaments to follow either the small sided tournament rules or the relevant mini-soccer rules, depending on which format of the game you choose to adopt for your tournament. If you wish to organise an 11-a-side tournament, then the normal laws of the game will apply.

For details of tournaments that have affiliated for the 2017, please click here.

If you have any questions on any of the above or would like assistance in getting your tournament affiliated, please contact Rachel Cossey on (01603) 704050, or email
