Leagues which are using either FA Full Time or Whole Game System Player Registration are eligible for funding, to be claimed against the purchase of new IT equipment.
Since the introduction of the Whole Game System a significant amount of league administration is now online. Over 55% of grassroots football now uses online player registration along with the launch of the Matchday app, increasing the requirement for leagues to be online.
Therefore leagues can secure funding against the purchase of equipment such as:-
- Computer, laptop or tablet
- Monitor, mouse and keyboard
- Printer, ID Card printer
- Multi-function device (all in one printer, scanner, photocopier)
- External hard drive
- Digital camera
In order for the league to apply for funding, it must be using Full-Time and/or Whole Game System. The league must meet the funding criteria which can be confirmed by contacting Clubs and Leagues Development Officer Olivia Laiker on 0161 255 1966 or email Olivia.Laiker@ManchesterFA.com.
If you are not currently using FA Full Time or Whole Game System Player Registration and would like to find out more, please contact The FA Technology Adoption Team at Playerregistrations@thefa.com
