Players, parents and managers have full control of their football admin all in one place thanks to FA Matchday, the official grassroots mobile app containing unique functionality which is considerably decreasing the effort required to manage an affiliated team.
Coaches can also organise fixtures, submit match returns and keep on top of squad selections, while players can use FA Matchday to make themselves available and keep track of when they’ve been picked. Also, there’s no more need for cash as monthly or annual payments can be set-up with PayPal, as well as ‘pay as you play’ options. It’s quick and easy to do.
Available on iOS (Apple) and Android smart phones, FA Matchday and PayPal can be used to make and manage match fee payments. Plus, there’s no need to enter squad details as these are automatically added from The FA’s Whole Game System. Fixtures don’t need to be entered either - these are routinely added from The FA’s Full-Time service.
There’s no requirement to check suspensions - the app shows who’s eligible to play. There is also no need to use Full-Time to enter match results, which can be submitted via the app at the tap of a button. A club is ‘Matchday ready’ if they answer yes to each of these questions:
* Does your league register their players in the FA Whole Game System?
* Does your team have a manager or coach assigned to them in the Whole Game System?
* Do The FA have an E-Mail address for you already?
