So how much does it cost? –

The following is a guide and based on the 2019/20 season and subject to change. Due COVID-19 the fees were subsidised by the league for the 2020/21.  No decision on fee's has been made for the new season, but the below is based on a typical season and should be used to aid your planning.

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 is an annual event and usually needs to be completed by the end of June each year.

The County FA affiliation fee for the 2019/20 season, including the minimum mandatory player insurance, was £147

Worcester League Fees

New CLub Deposit (One off) - £100

League Subscription (Annual) - £134*

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 three seasons this 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 needto be paid by August.


It’s the club’s reasonability to provide a suitable venue for fixtures, however the Worcester League help with clubs that require a Worcester City Council pitch.  Pitch fees vary and more details regarding Worcester Council Pitches can be found here.  

The typical cost of pitch with changing rooms averages at £50 per game.


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. Please note that this does vary for other external competitions, such as the WFA County Cup.
