Kent FA provide further help to clubs

The Kent FA have announced reduced affiliation fees for the 2020/21 season

An announcement by from Darryl Haden, Kent FA CEO reveals the details;

It has been over two months since the suspension of grassroots football. I am sure that you are missing it as much as we are, and I wanted to reassure you that we are doing all that we can to ensure that the grassroots game in Kent returns stronger than ever.

We hope you were pleased with the recent government update that groups of six can now train together. We understand the complex and unique challenges which different clubs will face, and we would like to thank those volunteers who are quickly and cleverly adapting to bring football back to their communities.

During this period, Kent FA and its partners have been working together to ensure that we can provide support to clubs in the county who will have inevitably been affected by COVID-19.

Therefore, Kent FA has decided to waive the following fees for 2020/21 season:

Club affiliation (including team levy charges)
Public liability insurance for all clubs
County cup entries for all teams

The Kent FA Foundation & Kent FA will be donating first aid kits to every team in Kent, which has been kindly supported by our Kit and Equipment partner Discount Football Kits.

UK Global will reduce the cost of Personal Accident Cover by 16.6%, with changes to the scales of cover available. The prices for Adult Scale 1 will be reduced from £69 to £57.50; Adult Scale 2 will be reduced from £86 to £72 and the price for Youth Football will be reduced from £20 to £15, regardless of age.

This follows earlier announcements from the London FA and the Southern Counties East Football League with both doing all they can to help clubs get through the COVID-19 Pandemic intact.
