Club Affiliation for the 2023-24 Season
Club Affiliation for the 2023/24 Season
Norfolk County FA are pleased to announce that the Club Affiliation window for the 2023/24 Season will open from w/co 12th June. Confirmation of the exact opening date will be confirmed in due course.
For the first time this season the Club Affiliation process will now be on the Club Portal which like last season will be a team based model.
The FA have created guides on how to complete each specific step pre affiliation and during the affiliation. These guides can be accessed through the Grassroots Technology page using the link below:
We would strongly encourage clubs to look at the Affiliation Checklist guide within the link which will outline the tasks needing to be completed before you can complete your Club’s Affiliation, and what to focus on once the window is open. It is also really important for clubs to familiarise themselves with the Safeguarding requirements that have previously been communicated as these will have an impact on Affiliations being approved.
In order to support clubs with the rollout of the new affiliation process, the FA are running an online training session on Monday 15th May (6:30pm – 7:30pm) to demonstrate the process a club will need to follow. To book onto this session please using the link below.
