Online registrations for Winter 2020 will open in early January for players in all age groups.

Registrations for Coaches and Team Managers will also open in early January.

All Players (or their Parents/Guardians) must read and confirm acceptance of the Code of Conduct when processing registration.

Priority is given to returning players who register & pay prior to February 1, then new players on a first-come, first-served basis until all teams in the age group are filled.


Click here to go directly to the Punchbowl United FC Registration Portal when you’re ready to start the registration process. Make sure to read the details below for details and instructions before proceeding.

Please remember to obtain your Active Kids Voucher(s) – if applicable – BEFORE you start the player registration process for your children. You will be asked to enter the voucher number during the registration process. Details on how to obtain a voucher are in the “Active Kids Vouchers” section on this page.

It’s very important players register in the correct age group. For juniors, age groups are based on the age a player will turn during 2020, regardless of which day or month. For example, a player born 14/01/2007 turns 13 in 2020 and will therefore play in the 13s.

New players registering for the first time will need to create a Football Account in the Play Football system– this is separate to your FFA number and everyone will need a Football Account.

If you have not registered an account in Play Football before, use the same email address as for the previous MyFootballClub system, as it will allow the new system to find your FFA number/profile and prompt you to link it to the new system during registration.

If you already have a Football Account then you can sign in with your existing details. During the registration process, if you have an existing FFA number/profile you will be prompted to link it to your Football Account. For those registering their children, you will be able to link your children to your account if their old MyFootballClub accounts used the same email address as your new Football Account.
