Club Licensing Appeals Body Decisions

The independent FAW Club Licensing Appeals Body met remotely today (29 April) to consider the appeals as a result of the First Instance Body decisions on 6 April for participation in UEFA competitions, the JD Cymru Premier and Orchard Welsh Premier Women’s League

Appeals from the following clubs were considered:  

  • Airbus UK Broughton (UEFA & Tier 1)
  • Newtown (UEFA only)
  • Cefn Druids (Tier 1)
  • Flint Town United (Tier 1)
  • Prestatyn Town (Tier 1)
  • Swansea University (Tier 1)

Following the conclusion of the Appeals Body meeting, the following clubs were successful with their respective appeals: Airbus UK Broughton, Cefn Druids, Flint Town United and Newtown. 

Prestatyn Town and Swansea University were unsuccessful with their appeals and are therefore unable to participate in Tier 1.   

In addition, the independent Appeals Body considered appeals from the following three clubs in relation to the Tier 1 Licence for the Welsh Premier Women’s League:

  • Aberystwyth Town (Tier 1)
  • Caldicot Town (Tier 1)
  • Cardiff City Women (UEFA & Tier 1)

Following the conclusion of the Appeals Body meeting, all three clubs were successful with their appeals. 

As a result, this concludes the UEFA & Tier 1 Club Licensing cycle for participation in Tier 1 and UEFA competitions for the 2020/21 season.
