League Sanctioning

The league sanctioning process takes place every summer alongside our affiliation service. It aims to bring all leagues operating within the county's boundaries under one umbrella to ensure a strong working relationship.

League sanctioning for the 2017/2018 season will begin in May 2017.

Sanctioning to Northumberland FA guarantees the leagues have access to all the benefits which being aligned with the Association provides, including access to qualified referees, our discipline infrastructure and access to funding pots.

To ensure fairness, The FA in cooperation with County FAs produce standardised rules for both adult and youth football.

This is designed to provide an easy process of putting together rules whilst safeguarding certain facets of the game which need protecting by a league’s rules.

Both sets of rules for the 2016/2017 season are available at the bottom of this page.

The current pricing for league sanctioning is as follows:

League Type
Price Per-Season
Adult Subsidiary Cup
Youth £25.00

Youth Subsidiary Cup
