Holding a football tournament? All tournaments, friendlies and competitions must be sanctioned. This includes summer tournaments/festivals, mid-week competitions and charity games.

It is important to recognise that an un-affiliated tournament, friendly or competition renders a club’s insurance invalid, with participating teams and referees at risk of not being covered by their existing public liability or personal accident cover. Un-affiliated competitions are also not governed by the FA's disciplinary process which means players, coaches and referees are potentially at risk.

Benefits of sanctioning:

Permitted to use registered referees (registered referees are not permitted to officiate in un-affiliated football)
Coverage under club public liability insurance
County FA approval of rules
Ensure that the tournament meets FA safeguarding requirements

Please ensure if you are holding a tournament that you complete a tournament sanction request form here. The tournament is not fully sanctioned and should not go ahead until you have received confirmation and your tournament affiliation number. Any tournaments known to be held without being sanctioned may result in an FA club charge.

It is also your club’s responsibility to ensure any tournaments attended are affiliated to ensure your players are not put at risk.

You can find a list of North Riding affiliated tournaments below which is continually added to, as and when we affiliate.
