Please see below, two documents to help your club complete their affiliation:
- An affiliation information pack
- A step-by-step guide on how to complete your affiliation
AFFILIATION INFORMATION PACK
STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO COMPLETING YOUR AFFILIATION ON THE WHOLE GAME SYSTEM
Please read the documents carefully.
The affiliation information pack is provided to explain the affiliation process. It also includes important information about safeguarding, mandatory qualifications, insurances, county cups and frequently asked questions. Please read this BEFORE starting your club affiliation.
The step-by-step guide this will show and tell you every step of the affiliation process, as a club would see it on the Whole Game System. This resource should be used when logged into the Whole Game System, when you are going through the affiliation process.

Please also note, affiliation and insurance are valid until the 30 June 2022 for all clubs who completed their 2021/22 affiliation online via the Whole Game System. As of 1st July, all affiliation and insurance will be invalid, and you will not be permitted to play any form of football until your club have affiliated for the 2022/23 season.
Should your club wish to play or train from the 1st July, you will need to have submitted your affiliation application to us, to be covered by insurance.
The deadline for all affiliations to be submitted to the County FA is Friday 15th July 2022.
Our Insurance provider, Sportsguard, will once again be partnering with our County FA to provide our clubs with insurance policies. These do vary, so please read the affiliation information pack to ensure you select the correct insurance policy.
We are also pleased to announce that we will be working with Koolpak to provide further savings to our clubs on essential First Aid equipment from ice bags, first aid kits to defibrillators at discounted prices.

We are encouraging ALL clubs to read through and adopt the below affilated safeguarding football policy. This is essential for youth clubs, but also for open aged clubs who have players under the age of 18, or could have a coach/referee involved in their game who are under the age of 18.

As ever, the team at Devon FA are on hand to support you with your 2022/23 affiliation. Dan Eustice deals with all Adult & Youth affiliations. If you have used both guides and cannot find an answer, or encounter an error which the guide cannot help you resolve, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our leagues & clubs for their co-operation and collaboration in working with us to ensure the safe return of grassroots football in Devon over the past year. The support which these volunteer-run leagues have shown to their clubs has been crucial – and we would not be where we are now without them. So thank you!
