England Football Accreditation - Re-validation

England Football Accreditation re-validation is open from 1st November 2022 - 30th April 2023


Thank you for being an England Football Accredited Club!

As you will be aware, England Football Accreditation was automatically awarded to all clubs and leagues that previously held FA Charter Standard.

For those existing FA Charter Standard accredited clubs, there was no annual health check for the 2020/21 season due to the impact of COVID-19 on the game.

As part of the new England Football Accreditation framework, annual health checks will no longer take place and will be replaced with a re-validation process.

For accredited clubs in the 2022/23 season, re-validation will open on 1st November 2022 and close on 30th April 2023.

Throughout this process, all current accredited clubs must meet certain criteria by providing evidence uploaded to the Club Portal to remain accredited and continue their accreditation status for the upcoming season.
