The Northumberland FA Affiliation window for season 2021-22 opens on Monday 10 May


Our affiliation window opens for 2021-22 on Monday 10 May.


We are pleased to announce we are once again offering substantial discounts on the price of affiliation compared to 2019/20 (prior to Covid).


Last season The FA provided additional funding due to the impact of Covid. This season we have received less funding from The FA, however we are delighted to be able to pass this onto our clubs. Usually affiliation prices increase year on year due to inflation, however we are committed to supporting our clubs after the events of the past 12 months which have impacted the finances of all grassroots football.


County Cup entry fees will remain the same for the third season running.


All Clubs also receive FREE Public Liability Insurance as part of the affiliation package.
