FA technology issue affecting Full-Time

FA TECHNOLOGY ISSUE – We’ve been made aware that FA Full-Time has, for some inexplicable reason, removed some managers log ins – stating the log in expired 26/1/23. FA Technology are aware of it and trying to resolve it. There’s nothing we can do about this other than report it as it’s an FA system. Contacts for your are available in YEL Scoreline. ANY managers who are unable to log in this weekend to complete match returns, should report the issue to and we will pass it on to Wembley. Also, ANY team contact/manager who normally receives referee appointment notifications and has not had them by Mon evening, again, please report this to – We will update you as soon as there is more info.
