Setting Up Competitions

This page will give you guidance on setting up an ad hoc football competition in Cheshire.

Competitions can't be formed without the consent of Cheshire FA. 

Therefore if you organise a competition or tournament in the county without getting it sanctioned by Cheshire FA, you or your club are in breach of FA Rules and could be subject to disciplinary action.

Any affiliated club or registered referee who takes part in unaffiliated competitions is also in breach of FA rules.



For infomation on organising a competition and how to get it sanctioned please read our Ad Hoc Competition Sanction Guidance document by clicking HERE.

To have a competition sanctioned you must complete and submit our Ad Hoc Competition Sanction Form which can be downloaded by clicking HERE.

    If you would like any further assistance with competitions or have any queries please get in touch with Gill Rutter, Cheshire FA Compliance and Regulation Officer at or on 01606 871166.
