The app that organises your life

It’s time to boot out all the boring admin around organising your football. The FA’s official Matchday app has been developed specifically to automate everything around your football life – whether you’re a player, club secretary, manager or coach.

It is estimated 40% of affiliated football match fees go unpaid each season. That is a lot of money your club could be losing, making it incredibly difficult to balance the books. 

Matchday however provides a new way to collect match fees quickly and easily thanks to new payments features in The FA Matchday app. 

Who’s in the team? Who are the opponents? Where’s the game? When’s kick-off? Is anyone currently suspended? 
With Matchday, all the answers are instantly available at your fingertips.

It’s all in a safe and secure environment which is backed by The FA. We’ll also ensure it has up-to-date, comprehensive information on players, clubs, fixtures and leagues.

It’s often said that time is our most precious commodity. The main aim of Matchday is to save you time, so you can confidently enjoy the game you love, knowing your football life is sorted. Oh, and we forgot to tell you – it’s free!
