FTAO OF ALL CLUBS

I understand there is an urgent need across multiple regions for more additional signatories.

In order to alleviate this pressure, I am going to alter the process for issuing signatory codes with immediate effect.
Nominated trainers will now be able to issue codes directly to their members on successful completion of training.

Please read the below steps carefully as failure to do so may result in the issue of invalid codes or the need for repeat training.

Its been noticed that some teams are NOT using the offical SERYFA team lines for their games. The SERYFA official team line can be downloaded from the forms page of our website.
