FAW CLUB LICENSING 2021-22

BUCKLEY TOWN APPLY FOR TIER TWO LICENSING FOR NEXT SEASON

The FAW have announced the full list of UEFA and FAW Club Licensing applicants for the 2021-22 season of men’s football.

A Licence is granted on an annual basis and automatically expires at the end of the season for which it has been awarded. Therefore, in order for clubs to maintain their status at their level of the Pyramid, they must annually apply for and meet the licensing criteria.

It’s important that clubs at all levels are assessed annually in order to ensure that the high standards clubs have already met remain in place and that all ground share agreements remain valid.

A Licence is non-transferable, so a club that achieved a Licence for the 2020-21 season is not able to transfer it over to the 2021-22 season.

Club Licensing is used as a tool for continuous improvement so any changes to the criteria are carefully considered and are made with the intention of increasing standards.

Due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, to ease the burden on clubs, the vast majority of the licensing criteria that was in place during the 2019-20 season has remained the same during the 2020-21 process, apart from some minor administrative updates.

A full list of applicants for UEFA, Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 licenses and also more detail on the decision-making bodies and the specific licenses can be found on the FAW website here.
