The Football Association Policy on Trans People in Football
Football belongs to, and should be enjoyed by, anyone who wants to participate in it.
The Football Association (The FA) regulates the participation of competitors in football matches and domestic competitions as set out in The Rules of The Football Association (The FA Rules).
It is The FA’s firm view that gender identity should not be a barrier to participation in football. The FA is intent on making football a lifelong experience, and ensuring the inclusion and safety of participants.
The FA has produced this policy to set out its position on transgender and transsexual people playing football. Please find links to the policy in full below, with the clearance application required for trans players, who are medically transitioning, to play in Cheshire FA Sanctioned Leagues
