03 Aug FSR Registrations – important points
In view of the changes in the FSR (Football Social Responsibility) registrations as from this season, we advise that due attention is paid when submitting the registrations as per YFA Circular Number 5, issued last week. All original applications are to be submitted at the YFA Office in Ta’ Qali, after which, a soft copy is to be sent to Robert@theyouthfa.org.mt
All applications submitted must clearly indicate if applying for item A (impossible to get relevant documentation due to refugee status, subsidiary protection or family difficulties) or item B (registering on FSR, whilst waiting for the FIFA Clearance). In case of an application submitted under item A, this must also include an explanation as to why, due to any of the particular circumstances mentioned above, FIFA clearance cannot be requested.
In the case of a registration under item B, applications will only be accepted by Youth FA, if endorsed by MFA, that the FIFA clearance has been submitted. You may also wish to note that applications for FIFA clearance are to be made by hand to MFA, with all documents required (as per attachments). An application might take up to 3 to 6 months to be either approved or rejected by FIFA, especially if they are non EU citizens. Applications with missing documents will not be accepted and everything should be in FIFA languages – French, English, Spanish or German. Clubs giving false information will have to respond to FIFA within 7 days at their own expenses.
