It’s time to boot out all the boring admin around organising your football. The FA Matchday app has been developed specifically to automate everything around your football life. It is viewable in a consistent format, from fixtures to match returns – and everything in between.

From The FA Matchday app on your phone, you can now accept match fee payments directly from your players. No more chasing players for fees or fumbling with cash—just more time for you to run your club.

By linking with PayPal, we’ve joined forces with the world leader in safe and secure online payments. Like us, they are dedicated to making busy lives simpler. The security and ease of PayPal comes at one affordable, transparent fee per transaction.

There’s lots more benefits beside payments. For managers and coaches you will be able to submit team sheets, match reports and final score directly from the app. Players will be able to access match information such as location as well submit their match availability. With The FA Matchday app, all the answers are instantly available at your fingertips.

Players can now pay for match fees quickly and securely using PayPal in The FA Matchday app - no more remembering to bring cash to the pitch! You’ll soon also be able to collect payments from players for other things e.g. annual subs - watch this space!

Your Club Secretary will need to link a PayPal business account in Whole Game System, and set your Club’s match fee amounts for regular, substitutes and any concessions.

Once they have done this, Team managers will be able to access Payments in the Matchday app. For each match played, as a Team Manager or Coach you simply need to submit your final match return or even submit just your team sheet in the Matchday app to trigger a request for payments from all players after the game.
