FAW and UEFA licensing decisions announced
The FAW has today released the first instance decision of FAW domestic and UEFA licensing for the 17/18 season.
The FAW domestic licence is compulsory for teams who wish to play in the Welsh Premier League, whilst the UEFA licence is pre-requisite for teams who play in Europe.
Prestatyn Town have been promoted to the WPL after being awarded the licence, whilst Barry Town’s promotion push looks ever stronger after also being awarded the licence.
Only one club has failed to gain a licence as Haverfordwest County of Welsh League Division One were refused. They have the right to appeal, so could still gain a licence for the 17/18 season.
Bangor City have meanwhile been awarded both licences, with the UEFA licence conditional. The club must fill its vacant coaching position with someone who holds the appropriate pro licence qualification within the required 60 days in accordance with the UEFA Regulations.
The full list can be found below as published on the FAW website.
