The WFA are celebrating recent national league success.

Last month it was confirmed that the National League was awarded FA Charter Standard League status. As well as confirmation of Charter Standard league status, the WFA received certification from the FA and a crystal trophy.  

The FA Charter Standard League is an accreditation that sets an operational benchmark for FA sanctioned leagues. Since 2009 this is awarded to leagues which can demonstrate their commitment to provide well-organised football in safer, more inclusive environments.

The Wheelchair Football Association National League is a two-tiered league, featuring 12 teams in each division. Based at Nottingham Trent University, teams take part in 5 league weekends throughout the season, culminating with a final end of season event.

David Lewis, WFA Chairperson said, “We are delighted to be recognised as a FA Charter Standard League, highlighting the standards our league is reaching. I would like to thank our member clubs as we could not achieve this award without them achieving their own Charter Standard club status on a local level. Collectively we must continue to work together to maintain these minimum standards and showcase the National League for the high-quality league it is.”
