In accordance with F.A. Rules and Regulations all “one off” or small sided competitions must be sanctioned by the local County F.A. This includes tournaments, festivals and charity based matches. Should this not be done all competing clubs and participating referees are liable to disciplinary action.

Clubs are reminded that you may only play in affiliated tournaments. It is against FA rules to play in unaffiliated competitions.

If you are unsure as to whether a competition is affiliated, the OFA will be able to advise you. Please contact Sam.Charles@OxfordshireFA.com for any questions.

CLARIFICATION REGARDING FA RULE 4A (III) – SUMMER TOURNAMENTS FOR YOUTH CLUBS AND COMMERCIAL PROVIDERS

The FA Rule states that leagues can organise a maximum of three trophy events during the season, lasting a variety of different weeks according to age. The ‘league season’ in youth football typically runs from September to April/May and then there is a period of about 8 weeks that grassroots clubs and companies run tournaments, often with the purpose of generating income to fund the following season. These one-day club events are usually separate sanctioned events, via an Application for Sanction form from the OFA.
 
Therefore, these one-day club/commercial events can be run for a trophy with a published winner, at all ages, if the organising club/company chooses to operate in this way. However, if they choose to run the younger age groups in a festival format this is permissible.
