Competition Sanction Reminder

An update on affiliation and competition sanctions within Northamptonshire

Northamptonshire FA would like to issue the following message regarding affiliation and competition sanctions within the county.


If any team is planning to compete in a tournament after 30 June 2021, they will need to have completed their affiliation for the 2021/22 season otherwise they won’t have any in-date Personal Accident Insurance. 


All competitions must be sanctioned by Northamptonshire FA. To submit your competition sanction request, please use this form:

All youth competitions will need to meet the NFA’s safeguarding requirements. Competitions are not permitted for the Under-6 age group. 

Competitions will also need to meet Government guidelines at the time of their events. 

 A list of sanctioned and in-progress competitions are listed on our website here

Thank you in advance for your co-operation.
