Online Player Registration

Online Player Registration

As part of a Commitment by The FA and County FAs to improve the administration experience for grassroots football volunteers, online player registration functionality has recently been introduced into the Whole Game System (WGS).

Following a successful six month pilot programme during which over 130,000 players were registered across 50 participating leagues, the new functionality is not to be made available to all grassroots leagues and clubs in England.

Whilst some leagues may initially decide not to use WGS for player registration purposes, all clubs will still benefit from using the system to maintain and manage their layer’s records. Amongst these benefits are;

  • secure storage of player records
  • records updated annually, creating a lasting history for each player
  • club and team records available for league registration processes (where appropriate)
  • more efficient club discipline management
  • providing your club with better player information to help you plan for the future

Clun saree invited to start entering your players’ details into WGS. Those of you within leagues who are using Full-Time to manage your fixtures and competitions administration will be able to match plater records between that system and WGS,

This will save you from having to duplicate effort and will ensure that for the first time, you have a single view of your players in both Full-Time and Whole Game.

Any players not already in Full-Time can be searched for and added directly into WGS using the FAN search function. This allows you to easily and securely identify players from across the national database.

Once you have found and attached your players you can then assign them to the appropriate team. At this stage the process is complete and you records are up to date and ready to be presented for league registration for season 2018/19.
