All Clubs should affiliate to their respective County Football Association. It is through affiliation that the family of football is brought together and correct standards and discipline are maintained. Affiliation acts as a quality assurance and as a safety net to help protect players, clubs, officials and administrators throughout the game.

Affiliation is completed online, through the Whole Game System. 

To access WGS you will need your FAN. To check for you FAN number, please click the 'FAN Finder' box on the right hand side of the screen.

Public Liability Insurance is included within your affiliation to Birmingham FA. But it is mandatory for all adult teams to purchase Personal Accident Insurance to cover their players.

Please ensure you have this in place BEFORE you begin your affiliation, as you will be asked to upload your policy online on the Whole Game System portal.

Insurance starts at as little as £25 per team – please contact our Insurance partner Sportsguard:

Whilst Personal Accident Insurance is not mandatory for Junior teams to complete affiliation, we do recommend this as best practice.
