Setting up a Club with Oxfordshire FA

Setting up a club


The vast majority of football throughout the country is played at a local level for personal enjoyment.

Before embarking on forming a new team, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are there enough potential players?
  • Are there enough volunteers to take care of club organization and administration?

To be able to participate in organised football or play in leagues, you must affiliate to your County FA.  

This isn’t a difficult task and we can provide step by step advice.

To help, we've produced a guide to help volunteers set up a new club.  This guide includes information about identifying football pitches to developing coaches and recruiting players.
