All Clubs should affiliate to their respective County Football Association. It is through affiliation that the family of football is brought together and correct standards and discipline are maintained.

Affiliation acts as a quality assurance and as a safety net to help protect players, clubs, officials and administrators throughout the game.

The major benefits from affiliation to Staffordshire Football Association include:

  • Being part of the structure of the National Game from grassroots upwards
  • Eligibility to participate in County F.A. competitions
  • Discipline and Fair Play
  • Opportunities to apply for grant aid and funding from the Football Association
  • Access to information and advice from the County F.A. personnel, F.A. Regional Development Manger and F.A. Regional Facility Managers
  • Opportunities to acquire suitable Public Liability Insurance cover for your club, team and players
  • Access to F.A. and County F.A. publications and resources
  • Opportunities to participate in F.A. football development schemes such as Charter Standard Awards.
  • The opportunity to make your Club's view known on the future development of the game to both County F.A.'s and The F.A.
