Prospective new Clubs looking to affiliate should contact a member of our Football Services Team on 01603 704050 and leave a message and we will get back to you, or alternatively email Support@NorfolkFA.com and we will be happy to provide support and guidance to get your new Club up and running.

For the 2020-21 season, Clubs should once 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 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 Services Team who will be only too happy to help you.You can

Due to the 2019-20 season being cut short by the Covid-19 pandemic, Club and Team affiliation fees are completely FREE of charge for the 2020-21 season.

The Public Liability fee for 2020-21 remains frozen at £21 per Club. Each Club only has to pay this amount once, irrespective of the number of teams that it runs.
The Personal Accident Insurance fees for 2020-21 have been reduced by around 17% to reflect the fact that the 2019-20 season was cut short by the Covid-19 pandemic: 

Adult Insurance 

Bronze - £53.50
Silver - £80
Gold - £135 

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.

Youth Insurance

The Personal Accident fee for youth teams is £19.50 per team and again full details of the cover provided can be found at the bottom of this page.
Please note that for the 2020-21 season you are required to provide the name of the manager / coach for each of your teams at the time of affiliating. All managers / coaches of youth teams MUST have an in date FA DBS at the time of affiliation. Any team that does not have a named manager or coach with an in date DBS will not be able to affiliate.

For 2020-21 all clubs with a youth team must have a minimum of Secretary, Chairman, Treasurer and Welfare Officer who are all required to complete the online safeguarding for committee members course. Please click here to access the online course.

For further information on DBS checks and the online Safeguarding for committee members course, please contact Support@NorfolkFA.com

Please remember that it is compulsory for all Adult 11-a-side Clubs to enter at least one County Cup Competition, including any Club who’s only adult teams are female.

Clubs with youth teams at U12, U14 & U16 ages are strongly recommended to enter their appropriate County Cup, although this is not mandatory. Please note that U13’s & U15’s can enter the Stuart Dracup Cup and John Savage Cup respectively should your Club not have an U14’s or U16’s.  Each Club may only enter one team per cup competition, with the exception of the Women's Cup where Clubs are permitted to enter both their First Team and Reserves.

If you are looking to affiliate a disability team for the 2020-21 season please contact a member of the Football Services Team on 01603 704050, or email Support@NorfolkFA.com, and we will be happy to help further. 

If you are unable to affiliate online, please contact a member of the Football Services Team on 01603 704050 and we will arrange for a paper affiliation form to be posted to you.
