THE F.A. STANDARD CODE OF RULES
RULES OF THE LEAGUE
NOMENCLATURE AND CONSTITUTION
1. (A) This Competition shall be designated the Wakefield & District Sunday Football
League/Cup and shall consist of not more than seventy (70) Clubs approved by the sanctioning authority.
All such Member Clubs must be affiliated to an affiliated County Football Association and their names and particulars shall be returned annually by the appointed date on the Form “D” to the West Riding County Football Association. The area covered by the Competition Membership shall be within a fifteen (15) mile radius of Wakefield Town Hall, WF1 2HQ.
This Competition shall apply annually for sanction to the West Riding County Football Association and the constituent teams of Member Clubs may be grouped in divisions, each not exceeding fourteen (14) in number.
This Competition and its Clubs shall support the FA’s Respect programme. As such it recognises that everyone in football has a collective responsibility to create a fair, safe and enjoyable environment in which the game can take place. A Respect League values the contribution of match officials, players and spectators and ensures that they are treated with courtesy and fairness by opposing players, club officials and spectators. The League and its Clubs will seek to play fixtures in a fair, competitive but not antagonistic environment.
Member Clubs shall not enter any of their teams playing in the Competition in any other Competitions (with the exception of F.A. and County F.A. Competitions) except with the written consent of the Management Committee of the Competition.
(B) At the Annual General Meeting or a Special General Meeting called for the purpose, a majority of the delegates present shall have power to decide or adjust the compilation of the divisions at their discretion. When necessary this Rule shall take precedence over Rule 12.
