Birmingham County FA discipline is now online, enabling clubs, leagues and referees to process their discipline matters at their own convenience. 

This is all done online through the Whole Game System. Clubs can acknowledge and pay for discipline cases, leagues can view suspensions and their online statement and referees can upload discipline reports. 

We understand the system is new and our customers may need additional support navigating the system and completing the relevant processes. At the bottom of this page, you will find various user guides. These guides will assist you with your day-to-day discipline processing.
