Further details with respect to Public Liability and Personal Accident costs within the coming weeks.

Subject to agreement of the Football Association, the club affiliation window will open in June 2020. All existing clubs will be sent an affiliation guide which will include the following;

- Whole Game System Affiliation Video Tutorial

- Whole Game System user guide containing a step by step process on how to apply for affiliation and highlighting the key changes to the 2020-21 affiliation requirements.


West Riding FA will continue to lobby on behalf of our membership to achieve whole scale cost reductions across the game, including, but not limited to, kit and equipment, first aid and facility costs.
