All players are required to self-register online with the Football Federation of Australia (FFA)  –  the website is called PLAY FOOTBALL.  This site will be open for players new to Lions FC from Monday 13 January 2020.  Registrations can be done using a computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

The first step is to create a Football Account, which will provide you with a simple way to access all of Football’s digital content.  To create your Football Account, go to the following website  –  https://www.ffa.com.au/football-account ; click on “Join Now”; select “Create Account” or “Already Have an Account?”

After creating the Football Account, you will be asked to link any other profiles (previous registrations) which have used your email address; this way you will be able to register all of your children using the same Football Account.  You can then Log In and register for the club.

Go to www.playfootball.com.au and click on “Register Now”, and choose the age group for the player you want to register.  In the “club finder” section, follow the prompts to find our club, using either the postcode 4077 or suburb Richlands. Please note our club name is LIONS FOOTBALL CLUB LTD (the club named “Lions FC – NPL” is for players selected for NPL teams ONLY)
