All tournaments whether festivals, charity matches or summer tournaments must be sanctioned by the County FA.
A large number of tournaments take place all over the County so please ensure that your tournament is sanctioned so that players and referees are covered by their insurances.
Just complete and return the tournament sanctioning form below, together with a copy of the tournament rules, to Colin.Chainey@dorsetfa.com, at least 21 days prior to the tournament (with a full list of clubs/teams returned no later than three days before the event).
We will contact you via email either to confirm sanctioning of the tournament, or to advise of any changes to rules that may be needed. Once sanctioning is confirmed, the event will be added to the Sanctioned Tournaments page on the Dorset FA website.
Please note: No 11v11 matches can be sanctioned to take place during June as per The FA’s Rules and Regulations.
