Staff availability during the festive period

Our staff availability will be limited from Monday 12th December 2022 until Tuesday 3rd January 2023, as we operate with reduced staff numbers for the rest of the month and throughout the Christmas and New Year period.

During this time, the most efficient way to get in touch with us is to email

Office closure
Our office will be closed from Friday 23rd December 2022 until Tuesday 3rd January 2023. Please note that anyone wishing to visit our HQ must book their visit in advance with a relevant staff member as we operate a hybrid flexible working environment.

The Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA Safeguarding team will be on annual leave from 1pm on Friday 23rd December 2022 until Tuesday 3rd January 2023.

The FA will be monitoring their inbox if a response from the FA is required during this time.

If you have an immediate and urgent concern about the safety or wellbeing of a child during the festive period, please contact the police on 999 or the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000 or visit

We appreciate that football may still be played during the festive period and therefore a small number of our team will be working flexibly and remotely to ensure that urgent queries are dealt with.

From everyone at the Sheffield and Hallamshire County FA, we would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
