  • As a Team Official you browse the site and enquire about tournaments of interest by filling in a form. When you have selected a tournament your team official contact details are shared with the relevant Tournament Director so that they may respond to you directly about the tournament. We store your form submission so that if the Tournament Director suffers technical problem causing loss of enquiries, we may re-send your enquiry up to date of the tournament. Re-sends are only provided to the Tournament Director to whom you had previously submitted an enquiry.
  • As a Tournament Director listing a tournament by filling in a form you register the contact details for the Tournament Director. We use that contact detail to send you enquiries and also for payment collection purposes and reminder/administration for the following season should you choose to renew.
  • If you contact us on an administrative matter, we keep a record of that correspondence but do not publish it. This also applies if you are County FA or League that enquires or requests further services from us.
