Bangor City have released a statement today confirming they will appeal against the decision by the Football Association of Wales not to give them the domestic license which allows them to play in the Welsh Premier league next season.

The FAW Club Licensing First Instance Body met on Friday 6th April 2018 to consider UEFA and FAW Tier 1 applications for the 2018/19 season. Bangor City, Connah’s Quay Nomads and Llanelli Town were refused the FAW Domestic Licence to play in the Welsh Premier League next Season.

Clubs are assessed on the following criteria:

  • Sporting: Youth & Coaching
  • Infrastructure
  • Legal
  • Personnel & Administration
  • Financial and Codes of Practice

Those clubs who have been refused a Licence by the First Instance Body, have ten days in which to submit an appeal. Should an application of appeal be received by the FAW, an Appeals Body will meet in Cardiff on Thursday 26 April 2018.

The statement on Bangor City’s Facebook page read: “Following the licence refusal yesterday the club will review the decision and await confirmation off the FAW of where the club has failed to meet the licence requirements; we will then follow the appeals process to ensure we achieve the licences. In the meantime we have a vital semi final to contest today so let’s get to Rhyl and support the team in its quest to get to the Welsh Cup final.”
