FC Isle of Man officially affiliated with FA

A new Manx football club has been officially affiliated with the Isle of Man FA.

FC Isle of Man confirmed its new status following a vote this week and it'll come into effect for the 2020/21 season.

The club is aiming to get itself into the English Non-League system to compete across the water - spokesperson Paul Jones says the next step is to begin the official application process to join the English FA structure.

Ideas for the vision started being explored earlier this year, and more recently the club held open meetings with football teams across the Island to get their thoughts on the concept.
