National Football Youth League - Discipline
THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL YOUTH LEAGUE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING THAT THE RULES AND REGULATIONS OF THE FA AND THE LEAGUE ARE UPHELD AND ENFORCED.
We take the welfare of the players that participate in the NFYL very seriously.
We have strict rules in relation to medical staffing and equipment in training and on match day.
We have teamed up with Physique to offer clubs special prices on medical supplies - details can be found here.
The NFYL works hard to ensure that this is a clean competition for all.
Fixing is arranging in advance the result or conduct of a match or competition, or any event within a match or competition.
Fixing is prohibited and is treated very seriously.
In addition, offering or accepting any bribes related in any way to improperly influencing the result or conduct of a match or competition or any event within a match or competition is similarly prohibited and serious.
If you attempt to fix, you are likely to get caught and receive an FA charge. If found proved, this is likely to lead to a significant suspension, and in some instances, a lifetime ban.
If you are approached or suspect that a colleague or someone you know has been approached or is involved in fixing, then you must report it to The FA immediately.
Failure to report any such offers may result in an FA charge against you

The National Football Youth League will not tolerate any form of discrimination, this includes protection of its players, member clubs, match officials and its own committee members.
Discrimination means treating someone “less favourably” than someone else, because of a particular characteristic in line with the Equality Act 2010. Discriminatory behaviour under FA Rules means conduct or language that is aggravated by ethnic origin, colour, race, nationality, faith, gender, gender reassignment, sexual orientation or disability.
