Playing Foreign Teams

Where a club is looking to play against foreign opposition teams, whether here at home in England or abroad at another venue, then permission is required from The Football Association

In accordance with FA Rule B.4, Affiliated Associations, Competitions or Clubs wishing to play a match or series of matches against members of another national association must apply on the prescribed forms to The FA at least 60 days before the date of the intended match or tournament. Applications which cannot be made by the deadlines should still be submitted and The FA will endeavour to provide permission prior to the match/tournament.

Documentation IS required for matches against teams from the Republic of Ireland and other FIFA countries.
