Sanctioning Of Friendly Games
07/08/2019

In relation to friendly matches, which are a major feature of pre-season preparations at this time of year, clubs are reminded of FAI Rules of the Association, Part C), Rule 34.3, which requires that these games be sanctioned.

Part C), Rule 34.3 reads as follows: “Domestic friendly matches, including but not limited to tournaments and trial matches, must be sanctioned by the League of the hosting team”.

The full FAI Rules can be viewed via the following link:

www.fai.ie/domestic/governance/fai-rule-book

The home team should take responsibility for obtaining sanction for a friendly game and, in the case of a UCFL team, this involves contacting the UCFL Hon Sec, Paraic Treanor (paraic.treanor@ucfl.ie), as far in advance as possible, requesting the UCFL’s sanction for the fixture.

FAInet.ie Training Session – Aug 8
06/08/2019

As advised at the July Management meeting, the UCFL has arranged a training session for the online player registration system (FAInet.ie) on Thursday, August 8. It had originally been intended to hold two sessions on the night, but the proposed time for the earlier session was not convenient for most and it was therefore decided to hold just one session, which will begin at 7.30pm in FAI HQ in Abbotstown.

All clubs are encouraged to attend as it will be an opportunity to become more familiar with the system and also the working of the second season process which effectively amounts to extending the registration of existing players for another season. Those attending should bring a laptop.

Those who wish to attend should email the Registrar at bryan.flewett@ucfl.ie and let him know their intention to do so.
