Today we were awarded our Domestic and UEFA Licences for the 2018-19 Season.
To gain these, there is considerable work to be carried out with assessment on the following:-
- Sporting: Youth & Coaching
- Personnel & Administration
- Financial and Codes of Practice
The meeting took place at the Association’s headquarters in Cardiff to assess and consider the 11 UEFA and 17 FAW Tier 1 applications.
9 of the current JD Welsh Premier League sides were awarded the Tier 1 Licence. All clubs who successfully attained the Tier 1 Licence have also been successful in achieving a UEFA Licence.
An FAW Tier 1 Licence is required for clubs to participate in the JD Welsh Premier League and for those clubs who qualify for European competitions, a UEFA Licence is also a pre-requisite.
The Club Licensing system aims to assist the continual improvement and development of football clubs at the top level within Wales. Licensing is a transparent process that enables clubs to demonstrate to their stakeholders that they meet quality standards.
Once again we thank John Collyer for leading and preparing our application.
