Preparing for the new season
Applications for the 2022-23 season will be opened up at the end of May via our electronic application form (see below). The link to the form is not yet activated.
Fixture e-mails and Contact Details
Team coach contact details are not managed by the league for fixture e-mails. Information is drawn directly from coach’s Whole Game System profiles. This process is controlled by clubs – wrong or missing info in WGS means wrong or missing info on fixture e-mails.
Before the season starts, managers and administrators (those set-up by their club secretaries in WGS) will get an e-mail invite to FA Full-Time. You need to accept this to receive fixture e-mails and text messages to submit results.
Please remember to mark your referee when one has been allocated to your game. This can be done via FA Full-Time or now through the FA Matchday app.
Your match result will not be approved until this is completed.
If you’ve already submitted your 2022-2023 season application form but need to add a team, remove a team or change any team details, please submit the form below…
