Saints Awarded FAW Tier 1 And UEFA Licences

It’s that time of the year again when clubs in the Welsh domestic system have been applying for the upcoming season’s licence. In spite of the extremely difficult logistical situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, with football itself at a standstill, the applications have still been processed and assessed. With European football a regular feature for The New Saints Football Club, it wasn’t just the FAW Tier 1 but also the UEFA Licence that was part of our submission.

Today, along with other clubs, we received the verdict on our applications and we are extremely pleased to announce that we have secured licences on both fronts.

Everyone at the club is extremely appreciative of the hard work that has gone on behind the scenes in order to gain both licenses.


‘In what are difficult times for everyone, we must all remain positive, gaining both licences is a major boost for the club at a time when our priority is to look after our family, friends and loved ones and hope that when football resumes, we are stronger and better than before‘, said Chief Operating Officer Ian Williams

‘The club also thanks the work undertaken by Football Coordinator Jacob Williams and Finance Director Helen Harris and takes great pride in the fact that each year since its introduction the club has always been granted the respective licences’, he concluded
