Fees & Requirements

The fees associated with affiliation will remain the same as for the 2017/2018 season, however I wanted to take this opportunity to highlight a few changes in requirements from last season:

Treasurers for all clubs featuring youth teams must complete the online Safeguarding for Committee Members course.  This is in addition to the current requirement of the Club Secretary, Chair and Welfare Officer completing the course.

Open aged disability teams can now be listed as mixed gender.

Every adult wheelchair team must have a coach assigned to it who holds an FA-approved CRC issued within the last three years. 

Clubs may allocate multiple individuals as “Assistant Secretaries” who will have access to all club information on the Whole Game System to assist in the administration of the club.  

Contact Information

Each club will be assigned a dedicated member of staff from the Berks & Bucks FA Football Services Team who will be on hand to assist with the affiliation process.  If you are re-affiliating for another season and have not been made aware of your staff contact, please email for assistance.

All leagues will be supported through the Sanctioning process by Chris Cole, our Competitions Coordinator who can be contacted via
