Make sure you have entered the correct name of the club. Begin typing the name and choose it from the drop down list. Note: some clubs have separate online pages but may be the same name/club e.g. Gladesville Ravens Soccer Club and Gladesville Ravens (FNSW State League) Club are the same club but different competitions.
Do I still need to complete a registration form?

However you may be required to complete a registration form if you are registering at your club.
I have played before but can’t find my FFA number, what do I do?
Try using different spellings of your name e.g. Jonathan and Jonathon. This may be due to incorrectly inputting your name into the system the first time you registered. Alternatively, call the Support centre and we will try and find it for you (02) 8020 4199
How do I move clubs during a season?
You will have to log in to your MyFootballClub homepage and select the ‘De-Register’ Option next to your current registration; this will then initiate a process where your club and the association that they play in will have to acknowledge your request to de-register. Once you have received emails stating that your de-registration has been accepted and processed you will be able to register for your new club through your MyFootballClub homepage. You may also request that the club initiate this process and accept the de-registration through your MyFootballClub homepage.
I can't get my password?
Use the Password reset section in the registration process. You will require an FFA number and email address. The new process gives you more options in case you can’t remember your original email address or if your FFA account does not yet have any email attached to it. If you still can’t get the password then please email the support centre at email@example.com or call the support centre on (02) 8020 4199
Why can't I pay online?
This will be either because your club has opted not to use online payments, they have forgotten to switch them on or they are using their own version of paying online. Either way it is best to contact your club for the payment method if you are unsure.
Where can I go for extra help?
Players can call FFA’s national MyFootballClub Support Centre, which will be operating from the 2nd of January to the end of April 2014. The email address to contact the Support centre is firstname.lastname@example.org. The number is (02) 8020 4199. The Support Centres open times will be 12pm to 9pm on week days during this period. We will open up on some Saturdays and Sundays during the busiest registration periods prior to the season starting.
Why hasn’t my new password arrived to my email?
When you request a new password the system sends it to you by email immediately. If you don’t receive the email, it may be due to one of the following:
a) The email address in the system is incorrect: Contact FFA’s call centre direct and ask them to update the email address in the system and then request a new password.
b) There is no email address in your record: Contact FFA’s call centre direct and ask them to update the email address in the system and then request a new password.
