Affiliation

All clubs in the area affiliate to the Westmorland County Football Association. It is through affiliation that the family of football is brought together and ensures correct standards and discipline are maintained.  In effect it acts as a quality assurance and as a safety net to help protect players, clubs, officials and administrators throughout the game.

 

Benefits of Affiliation

affiliation for 2020-21 season

The Westmorland County FA can confirm that affiliation for teams in the 2020/21 season will receive a 70% reduction from their affiliation fees.

We hope that clubs will be pleased with the reduction and this will help finances at this difficult time.

Process

Clubs will be able to affiliate from 15 June 2020 and this will be set at £0.00 initially in order to start the affiliation process. (Please note we still have no start date for the 2020/21 season)

The membership fee of £10 will remain and clubs affiliating to us as a secondary affiliation (non parent County) will not receive the 70% discount.

Once we have an indication from the Football Association and Government for when it is safe for grassroots football to resume, we will have a final review of any further reductions.

Clubs will then be invoiced for their membership and reduced affiliation fee.

Personal Accident Insurance

All clubs must take out Personal Accident Insurance, it is at the clubs discretion who they purchase this from. The FA’s partner is Bluefin, below are links to the Bluefin brochures for 2020-21 season.

Public Liability Insurance

As in previous years The Westmorland County FA pay half of your club’s Public Liability County Cover Insurance of £25.00, this will remain in place for 2020-21 season and will be purchased via Bluefin.
