Tournament Information 2022

 

WE SORT THE FOOTBALL & YOU SORT THE ACCOMMODATION

ACCOMMODATION

After 19 years of supplying accommodation we have decided to change our business and allow families to book their own. We hope this will encourage more teams to take part and whilst we wont make as much profit, our speciality is organising Football not  holidays. NOTE many of the larger Holiday Parks have made it clear they DO NOT want Groups..instead they want Individual families, If you book onto a Park you need to be aware of this

You have complete freedom to book any type of accommodation anywhere you wish, including hotels and B&B, but we recommend you book as individual families.

You simply get each family to book and pay the standard Holiday Park price...no more empty bed supplements !!

COVID 

All of our events in 2020 had to be cancelled due to Covid 19, we were able to give full team refunds to all of the teams involved. In 2021 Easter was cancelled with full refunds, the May Day weekend most of the teams took refunds, however, we managed to provide football for 10 teams. 

PAYMENT

We are happy to take bookings now, with £75 Deposit and balance by 31 January 2022...ALL payments will be via BACS

All age groups are based on English FA guidelines for the 2021/22 season, for example, u10s must be born after September 1st 2011.  (Scottish u10s would be 1st January 2012)

Team Qualification 

All participating teams must be registered to a county or schools FA and must apply for permission to enter from their local FA. UKFT follow Football Association guidelines for all age groups. Representative and professional teams are not permitted to enter; All players must be registered with the team during the 2021/22 season. We will ONLY allow an academy player if the team can prove a player was registered that season, this helps any player joining an academy after booking the weekend. All tournaments are sanctioned by the Football Association. 

Team Registration Fees

A Team Registration fee is payable, this payment will assist with the cost of trophies, ground hire, referees fees, accommodation for referees and helpers, plus all other general tournament costs. We no longer have income from Caravans and to stage a Coastal event does cost far more than a Club event and we are a full time business.
