England Football Accreditation Renewals

The Deadline For England Football Accreditation is April 30th!

The April 30th the deadline for England Football Accreditation is approaching quickly. With this in mind, we at the County FA are running three evenings throughout February to support England Football Accredited clubs around completing the accreditation renewal process

We acknowledge that over the last two years clubs have not had to reaccredit, the programmes criteria has changed slightly and we have seen the introduction of the new Club Portal system to renew accreditation. Therefore, the purpose of these meeting is to help clubs understand the process as well as network with other clubs.

The evenings we are delivering are as follows;

Thursday 2nd February – 7pm on MS Teams

The evenings primary focus will be on how to move through the England Football Accreditation process using your FA Clubs portal. Alongside club development planning to provide the opportunity to review your clubs’ challenges and share good practice with others.

We know clubs welcome opportunities to network with others, so throughout the call club officials will be put into breakout rooms to have discussions on certain topics.

Tuesday 7th February – 7pm at Holmes Park & Monday 20th February – 7pm at Wreake Valley

These sessions will be running more as drop ins, with the aim that at the end of the session you will have finished the accreditation process or at least be further on. The presentation from the MS Teams call will be shown at the beginning of the session and then County FA staff will be available in the room to help with any queries you may have.
