Player Registration

Register your clubs' players online

Online Player Registration has arrived.

As part a commitment by The FA and County FAs to improve the administration experience for grassroots football volunteers, new online player registration functionality has recently been introduced into the Whole Game System (WGS).

Following a successful six month pilot programme during which over 130,000 players were registered across 50 participating leagues, the new functionality is now to be made available to all grassroots leagues and clubs in England.

Whilst some leagues may initially decide not to use WGS for player registration purposes, all clubs will still benefit from using the system to maintain and manage their players’ records.

Amongst these benefits are;

  • Secure storage of player records
  • Records updated annually, creating a lasting history for each player
  • Club and Team records available for league registration processes (where appropriate)
  • More efficient club discipline management
  • Use of the FA number (FAN) to create a single player view – particularly for those clubs using Full-Time
  • Providing your club with better player information to help you plan for the future

Those of you within leagues who are using Full-Time to manage your fixtures and competitions administration will be able to match player records between that system and WGS. This will save you from having to duplicate effort and will ensure that, for the first time, you have a single view of your players in both Full-Time and Whole Game.

A Guide to Player Registration has been created to offer more information about the process.

No, online Player Registration is not mandatory. However, we encourage clubs to start doing this as it will make online administration simpler and easier in the long-run.
Yes and no. Registering Players online is not mandatory for clubs. However, even if your league does not currently accept online player registrations via the Whole Game System (WGS) they may look to adopt the process in coming seasons and completing the Player Registration process for your club now will mean you won't have to do it again in the future.

Also, registering your club players will help you to save administration time on other club management processes; such as team discipline.

A club Guide to Player Registration is available to help with the process, along with e-learning videos on the Whole Game System (WGS).
