Players will be able to start purchasing next seasons Membership through the Devon FA shop and clubs can also use this to purchase bulk memberships for their players.

The scheme continues to enable the County FA to reduce affiliation fees and directly funds into the Devon FA Community Fund – formerly known as the Devon FA DIY Fund – and this helps clubs fund facility improvements and projects no matter how big or small! Information on how to apply to the Devon FA Community Fund in 2023 will be announced shortly.

Key dates for you to be aware of:

12th June – Player membership opens to be purchased through the shop and any request for bulk buys.

There are three ways in which players can obtain their Player Membership for the 2023/24 season:


1. Players can go onto the Devon FA Shop, and purchase their membership here
