Step 7 to 6 Promotion Criteria 2018 - 2019

Step 7 to 6 Promotion Criteria 2018 - 2019

Dear Colleague,

Please find attached all the necessary documentation for the Step 7 to 6 Promotion Application process.


As in previous seasons, The Football Association will manage the promotion process for all clubs seeking promotion from Step 7 to Step 6 of the National League System. The ONLY EXCEPTION will be in cases where Step 6 competitions have Step 7 divisions as part of their Constitution. Promotion in such cases will be in accordance with the Rules of that particular competition, although the final placement will be the responsibility of the Association.

You may note that the Application Form itself is now an editable PDF. We have decided to make this change in order to make life easier for the clubs as they can save their entries and edit this from season to season, changing only the items where a variation exists. Therefore, if a club applied last year they may benefit from simply updating last years’ form.


We would appreciate it if you could forward this to your member clubs as soon as you are able, and to explicitly highlight that all items have to be;


SUBMITTED BY THE DECEMBER 31st DEADLINE.

 

The cheque payment is also due by this date and it should have the Club’s name written on the back if from a personal/unrecognisable account.


Note: New North West/Essex & East Anglian Step 6 Divisions – Clubs will be aware of the two new divisions at Step 6 from the 2018/19 season. At the time of writing, the membership of the divisions are unknown but the selection of membership will be made by the FA’s Leagues Committee in conjunction with leagues. It is feasible that more than one club per Step 7 league (in the surrounding areas) could be promoted and clubs are encouraged to apply in the usual manner.


All promotion applications and/or queries, along with the supporting documents, should be sent to promotions@TheFA.com


If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to ask.


Kind regards


Matt
