The FA

Scott Bolton, FA Competitions Officer

We have been using Participant for all Clubs to apply to enter FA Competitions for over 10 years now, we have over 1,500 Clubs applying across eight FA Competitions each season.

Since introducing the online application it has been incredibly successful for us and extremely well received by all the Clubs completing the application and making payment of the entry fees online within minutes!

From The Emirates FA Cup to The FA County Youth Cup, from Manchester United FC to Manchester County FA, they all apply using the same online application process through Participant.

The technical support we received from initially setting up the online application and the continual support we receive as look to develop the application each season has been absolutely brilliant!

Community Sports Foundation

Dan Crouch, Contracts and Performance Manager

The switch from our old supplier to Participant has been extremely smooth without any delays. Our customers are already finding that completing a payment is much quicker and our back office admin has been reduced from 15 minutes per booking to 2 minutes.
