What is the Whole Game System?

Whole Game is the new On-Line Football Administration System designed by The Football Association to enable Clubs and Referees to administer their day to day activities in a simple and effective way without the need to send or receive letters via the post to and from the County FA.

For Referees, they can now register on-line, they can also submit all misconduct reports via Whole Game, no need for the old template reports that were completed and emailed to the County FA’s. The New system streamlines the discipline process, it knows who the clubs are, in which Leagues and Competitions they play, and if the League is on Full Time, it already knows the players that are registered.

For Clubs, Whole Game will act as an online portal for clubs. The first step this year is to go-online and complete your affiliation for the new season. This is a very much simplified process which commences with the existing data that we know about your club, you either change the data or confirm the existing is correct, confirm your County Cup entries and details of your Public Liability Insurance and Personal Accident Insurance and finally choose how and when to pay your fees.

From the commencement of the new season, all club discipline will be administered via Whole Game. Clubs will be able to view all cautions and misconduct charges for players via the Club Dashboard. In addition, clubs will have the ability to administer them all online without the need of for paper forms to sign and return with cheques any more.

The Whole Game System allows clubs to complete all of the following:

  • Affiliate to The Staffordshire FA online
  • Manage finance online including payments
  • Process discipline online
  • Submit Charter Standard applications online
  • Apply for league sanctions online
  • Manage player registrations online
  • Have 24/7 access to your club records

As the Whole Game System will be managed online, grassroots volunteers will need an up-to-date email address that they can use to access the system.  Please update and check your details on Member Services on the Staffordshire FA website.  If you are having difficulties accessing the site to update your records please call the Staffordshire FA on 01785 256994.

The purpose of the Whole Game System is to provide grassroots volunteers and the wider Football workforce a streamlined and accessible administration experience. Please see the video's below for support and guidance.
