Quick Summary

If you are looking to change clubs or simply not wishing to play anymore, please use the following steps to perform a de-registration.

Key Notes

  • The de-registration process may take a minimum of 7-days to be cleared.
  • If you have an active registration, you will need to perform a de-registration. 
  • If you are transferring to another club, you must wait for the de-registration to be finalised. The system will not allow you to re-register until this occurs. If you attempt to re-register before the de-registration has been completed you will receive an error message informing you that you are not able to register. 
  • Pending registrations can be cancelled instantly and the participant is not required to follow the following steps

Steps to Completion

A de-registration is a three-step process:

Step 1: Initiate a de-registration request.

Step 2: Club/player accepts the request (dependent on who initiates it).
 (If this request is NOT acknowledged after 7-days it will automatically be sent to the Association)

Step 3: The association of the clubs approves/declines the request (2nd level approval)

Once logging in, click on "MANAGE MY REGISTRATION".



This will direct you to your "Participant Portal ". Click on "Registration" and then "Reg/DeReg" or click "Go" next to "De-Register".

If there is no "manage my registration" button, please go directly to https://user.playfootball.com.au/ to access the Participant Portal Directly. 


If it's a linked person's registration you wish to de-register for, then click on the name in the top right-hand corner and select the person you wish to de-register for in the drop-down menu.  

If the person you wish to de-register is not listed under "Linked Records", click here.


Click "Registrations" then click "Reg/DeReg". Under 'Current Registration(s)' you can click "De-Reg" for the registration you wish to de-register from. 


Once you have clicked "De-Reg", you will be prompted to add a reason as to why you are de-registering. Fill in the details and click "Submit".


A de-registration has now been requested and will appear under 'Registration Requests'. The request needs to be approved by the CLUB and ASSOCIATION in this order before a new registration can be made.


The registration will still be visible under "current registration(s)" until the request has been completed, the "de-reg" option will have been removed from the "actions" column.

After the club and association have approved the de-registration, an email will be sent to confirm that your de-registration has been finalised and the registration record would have been removed from "current registration(s)" and added to "registration history".
