BAFA National Leagues registration system now open

Thursday, October 3, 2019

Team and member registration for the 2019-2020 season is now open for all National Leagues teams.

National Leagues registration is now open for 2019-2020, with membership running from the period 1 October 2019 until 30 September 2020 for all players, coaches and staff.*

The 2019-2020 transfer window is also now open. Players, coaches and staff may now submit a request to transfer to another team via the National Leagues registration system. The transfer window will close again on Tuesday 7 July 2020.

We remind you that transfers are only required between National Leagues clubs, and are not needed for interclub moves or moves to or from university football.

You can access the BAFA National Leagues registration portal at or via the link on the Clubs and Competitions tab of BAFA website.

System improvements and changes
There are no major changes but users may note cosmetic enhancements to the look and feel of different screens.

2019-2020 fees
These were announced earlier this month and you can find a full list here.

University player and coach registration
University football players will now register for student football through BUCS Play, as with every other BUCS sport. Sideline staff should also register on this system.

University Coaches should continue to register for student football through the 
National Leagues registration system. Coaches and staff may look to register on BUCS Play as well if they are assigned responsibility for submitting Team Sheets for each fixture.

Further support
Step-by-step ‘how to’ guides to registering a team, renewing individual membership or creating a new membership are available on the
Rules and Regulations page.

If you need more help please contact the BAFA National Leagues registration team at – please note that queries will be dealt with within five working days.

*Please note, registration for women’s Opal flag and Sapphire contact teams is already open, and their registration year runs to an earlier schedule which has been directly advised by competition management.
