This fund will be used to help support our single team adult clubs to become more sustainable and to be able to carry on playing for years to come.
We understand running an adult club can be a time consuming and thankless task so we want to try and make this job easier! To help improve your clubs sustainability we are pleased to provide you with support and guidance to make 3 simple changes to your club and therefore fund you with free affiliation.
We conducted in depth research, insight and analysis and have developed 3 criteria and support packages that we can support clubs to work towards.
The criteria are as below;
- 3 separate club officials assigned to the Whole Game System.
- An open club bank account.
- Whole Game System training to ensure no outstanding fines and late fees.
We have recognised that some of the main reasons clubs fold is when the single official stops running the club, outstanding fines get too much to pay and officials aren’t able to complete all the admin duties and look after finance. This list is not definitive as we know that facilities, lack of players etc... All play a part. However these changes are easy to make and can make a big difference.
In order to access free affiliation and the support packages to make the above changes please contact AdultFootball@CheshireFA.com with “Adult Retention Fund” in the title of the email.
We can then discuss the best plan of action and support you with the changes.
This is a great opportunity for adult clubs to improve their sustainability and save money on the affiliation fee. We look forward to working with our clubs ready for the 2018/19 season!
