So how much does it cost? –

The following is a guide and based on the 2018/19 season and subject to change.

County FA

Before you can play football, you need to affiliate with a County FA.  For us that’s the Worcestershire FA, although our two Colwall sides are affiliated to the Herefordshire FA.  Affiliation usually needs to be completed by the end of June each year.

Last season the County FA affiliation fee, with the minimum mandatory player insurance was £141

Worcester League Fees

New clubs are required to deposit £100 – this will be kept by the league until you withdraw.  This is a one-off deposit and doesn’t need to be paid annually for future seasons.

League fees are formed of 3 parts.  The club/team annual subscription, league insurance and the club monthly draw fee (8 draws with 1 prize of £40, and 3 prizes of £30 each month).

  • Club/Team annual subscription:  £65*
  • League insurance:                           £9
  • Club monthly draw:                        £60

*Since the FA introduced mandatory player insurance, the league has given something back and the past two season it has been £50 cash back against the annual subscription.  Therefore, the club cost for entering one team last season was £84.

Preseason is a busy and often expensive period; therefore, the Worcester League doesn’t collect fees until the end of September after a full month of fixtures.  Furthermore, the fees can be paid in two instalments to spread the cost.  New club deposits require paying by August.

Pitches

It’s the club’s reasonability to provide a suitable venue for fixtures, however the Worcester League help with club requiring a Worcester City Council pitch.  Pitch fees vary.

Referees

It’s the responsibility of the home team to pay the match day referee.  The referee fee is currently £25 plus mileage at 35p per mile up to a maximum of £10.00.
