Please note, the functionality to Lock teams is only available to Associations, it is not available to either Member Federations with clubs linked directly to them in the organisational hierarchy OR organisations set up as Affiliates. 

If you wish for your clubs under your association hierarchy to have their teams locked when marking them official, then please follow these steps. 

First, log into your association's Play Football Admin account using the link below. 

Admin Log In

Once logging in, click on "REGISTRATION" and then "Team Lock Rules". 

Select the football types that you wish to lock, then click "Save". 

On performing this action, all teams set as Official will now be moved to a 'Locked' status. 

Please note, that Football Type relates to the Football Type set in the Team Edit screen against a Team, this has no reference to the Football Type the registration has been made against.

If you have issues performing this, you can either either submit a support ticket by clicking here or using our contact details below.
