What is the Whole Game System?
Kent FA have been selected as a pilot county for the new system, which will provide a complete and comprehensive online package available to clubs, leagues, referees and players 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Accessed via the Kent FA website, the Whole Game System will integrate the existing online and paper-based processes that currently exist in grassroots football, including player registration, league and club affiliations, league sanctioning, discipline and referee registrations. The Whole Game System will also provide a complete financial management package for clubs including the facility to make affiliation payments, pay competition entry fees and pay fines or other charges.
The purpose of the Whole Game System is to provide grassroots volunteers and the wider Football workforce a streamlined and accessible administration experience. Further details of the system will be announced shortly including timescales for delivery, and training and support available to the clubs, leagues and volunteers who will use the system.

Kent FA have already begun the rollout procedure with communications testing, and will be contacting clubs and leagues who do not have up to date email records in the coming weeks to request an update to their records on Member Services, accessed through the Kent FA website.
Chief Executive Paul Dolan explained the benefits of the system;
“The Whole Game System will change the way grassroots volunteers run their clubs, leagues and competitions. Replacing the old paper systems of discipline and payment will save time and money for club volunteers. The Whole Game System also integrates CAS, Full Time, MOAS and the other existing systems so there will be a single, streamlined point of contact for everyone involved in administrating grassroots football.”
“As a pilot County we’re in the first group of County FAs to be using it and our role is to get the new system into full operational use whilst working with clubs and leagues to resolve any problems or queries that might come about as a result of using the new system.”
