Team / Association Suspension

The ESFA Council has now approved the procedure for team / association suspension.

Associations with no representative teams must check next season that their opposition is not subject to suspension. The ESFA website will list registered teams who have yet to gain approval to play representative football.

Team Managers  / Staff

There are currently a large number of Associations which have either not declared their team managers or have in place managers who are not fully compliant.
