When can I register?

Registrations typically open in March, the month before the season starts. Do not attempt to register until your coach has given you approval. Our registrar will only approve registrations that match to the team list that they receive from coaches. For some divisions, team selections continue up until the first round.

Where can I register?

You can register through the PlayFootball website here. Please follow the website instructions.

What do I need to register?
Registered Before (Domestic)
  • Personal Details
  • Student Number (if a student)
  • ANU Sport SRA Membership (if not a member, please choose the registration package including SRA membership)
  • Credit Card (for registration fee)
Registered Before (International)
  • Some players may require an International Transfer Clearance. See below.
Never Played Before
  • A form of identification (typically a passport/drivers license)
  • A profile photo
What is an International Transfer Certificate (ITC)?

An International Transfer Clearance may be required for players who have registered to play for a club under a Football Association of another country. 

Never Played with a Club Anywhere Before
  • During on-line registration process, system will ask country of birth and nationality and indicate ITC required.
  • Player will need to provide a copy of the picture id page of his passport to ANU FC who pass it to CF.
  • CF sends passport copy and player details to FFA, which sends them to other country FA.
  • Other country FA verifies player never registered there and clearance comes back via FFA, CF to ANU FC.
Played with Club in Own Country
  • During on-line registration process, system will ask country of birth and nationality and indicate ITC required.
  • Player prompted to enter name of previous club in home country - GET THIS RIGHT, not just approximately!
  • System automatically generates ITC request to FFA.
  • FFA sends ITC request to other country FA; FFA is very efficient at this.
  • Other country FA asks player’s club for clearance - this where your player can help by contacting club, telling them ITC request is coming and asking them to immediately approve it.
  • Clearance comes back via other country FA, FFA, CF to ANU FC
Played with a Club in Australia Previously
  • During on-line registration process, system will ask country of birth and nationality and indicate ITC required.
  • System also asks if previously played in Australia; if YES, system will drop ITC requirement.
  • Critical that player enters name used with previous Australian club - South American players often have  a middle name and two surnames and previous Australian club may not have used correct surname.
Expect European and North American ITCs within a week, South American within a fortnight, other places it helps if your player knows someone in the home country FA or gets their home club to pester the national FA.

What is an SRA membership?

Previously known as the ANU Sport Membership fee, the Club Affiliation Fee is a compulsory levy paid by all non-student members of sport clubs affiliated to the ANU Sport and Recreation Association (SRA). This fee is currently $120 per annum, and is payable at the same time as the membership fee of the specific sport club. This fee provides the following benefits:

  • Provides affiliated sport clubs with access to discounted use of sport and recreation facilities at the ANU for training and competition.
  • Provides club members with discounted rates for the ANU Sport Fitness Centre and discounted access to facilities for personal use.
  • Provides individual members with access to personal accident insurance through the ANU Sport insurance coverage.
  • Provides professional indemnity insurance to the executives of affiliated organisations

If you are a member of an ANU Sport affiliated club, you will have paid this fee at the time of purchasing your club membership. If you are a member of the ANU gym, you will have had to pay this to join, and you DO NOT need to pay this again.

Prior to purchasing the ANU Sport Affiliation Fee, please ensure that you are familiar with the terms and conditions of becoming a member of an ANU Sport affiliated club.

Current ANU students DO NOT need to pay this fee as it is already covered through their tuition fees.
