Liverpool FA is pleased to announce that the affiliation window for clubs is open.


Access to this is through the Whole Game System all adult and youth clubs have to affiliate for next season and purchase Personal Accident Insurance through Bluefin Insurance for each team under their affiliation.


The dates for affiliation opening and closing are as follows:

With grassroots football now back in full swing, Liverpool FA will be reintroducing affiliation fees for the 2022/23 season. Whilst costs have been reintroduced, we have done everything we can to keep costs as low as possible for clubs, both youth and adult. As evidenced in the table below, there have been small increases across all fees.

As well as your annual affiliation, clubs will once again be required to confirm their entries for the 2022/23 LCFA County Cup competitions. Clubs are asked to complete the relevant forms below:

As with affiliation fees, Liverpool FA have reviewed County Cup entry fees and worked hard to maintain the associated costs as close to previous seasons costs.

Product Format Cost
County Cup Adult £20
County Cup Youth (U18) £15
County Cup Junior (U13 & U16)  £10

The club affiliation will not process if all safeguarding sections for youth clubs are not up to date. Please ensure that all coaches aligned to youth teams have an in-date FA DBS and the Secretary, Chairman, Treasurer and Welfare Officer also have all their relevant qualifications in-date. All of these roles require the Online Committee Safeguarding Qualification to be completed.

Unlike in previous seasons, if an Open-Age team contains players under the age of 18, any coaches attached to the team must have an in-date FA DBS.

Mandatory Public Liability Insurance - purchased through Whole Game - for the 2022-23 season is priced as below:
