DORSET FA COUNTY CUPS
Today the Dorset County Football Association administers over twenty County competitions.
This number rises and falls to reflect the many areas and age bands of football played in the County. There are three main areas of County Cup Competitions, Adult (Saturday and Sunday), Youth and Girls.
Most seasons bring their fair share of proposed Rule changes, the Dorset County Cup Competitions have been no exception. All Dorset affiliated ‘Adult’ clubs have to enter their first team in the appropriate County Cup Competition, with the exception of the Dorset Senior Cup Competition, where clubs may pay an exemption fee if they wish to. Beyond a clubs first team, any other adult team that a club has are able to enter their appropriate Cup Competition if they so wish.
With a large reduction in Sunday, Male adult Football, The Dorset County FA only administer two Sunday Cup Competitions. All teams enter the Dorset Sunday Challenge Cup, any team knocked out of this Competition prior to the last 16 are then given the opportunity to enter the Sunday Plate Competition.
