  • Injured players who wish to claim on FNSW insurance, must remain registered, but a partial refund will apply if you're missing a significant portion of the season.

Important Information regarding De-registrations

  • A player cannot register with another club until the de-registration has been approved by BFC and also has 2nd-level approval from NSFA, which can take up to 7 days.
  • Active Kids Vouchers cannot be refunded for cash, they can however be transferred to another Active Kids Provider.

  • Why must the de-registration be completed by May 31st to get a full refund? This is the cutoff date set by Football NSW. On this date, BFC will be billed for Football NSW, Football Australia & the NSFA components for any Active players in PlayFootball. Therefore any players not de-registered fully by May 31st will have these portions of the fee deducted from their total refund amount as BFC will be liable & invoiced for those. The club also uses registration fees to pay for ground hire, lighting, equipment, equipment maintenance, general administration purposes.
