Club Affiliation Guide


club affiliation guide and new clubs

As per FA rules, all teams and leagues must affiliate with their local County FA in order to play competitive and recognised league football and County Cup matches. At Surrey FA we understand that if you are affiliating for the first time, or a club that is renewing its affiliation, the process can be confusing. With this in mind, we’ve put together a club affiliation guide which covers everything that you need to know about the process. If you’re looking at setting up a new club, as opposed to simply renewing your affiliation, then the guide should be your first port of call.
