Introduction

As a football management system, the aim of COMET is to be as user friendly as possible, whilst also ensuring accuracy and efficiency in capturing all of an individuals roles within Welsh football.

In order to do this, the COMET system has a large number of roles an individual can be registered to.

However, an individual does not need a different COMET record for all of their roles!

All registrations are meant to sit on a single COMET account in order to make the system as easy as possible to find and register individuals, whilst also ensuring an accurate record of the number of people involved in the game in Wales.

This guide will help to explain all of the different role types on COMET a person can be registered in for a club.

Select View as on a persons record to select and view all of the available role types:

Selecting View as at the top left of a person's COMET record will allow you to view a full list of all available role types an individual can be registered as on COMET.

If a role type is in bold, this means there is an active registration either in process or confirmed within this role type.

Other than registering for one club as a player, there is no restriction on the number of registrations an individual can hold across multiple role types.

An individual can also hold multiple registrations within each role type or across role types, for the same or different organisations, so the system is very flexible.

The full list of role types on COMET that are applicable to clubs are:

  • Player
  • Coach
  • Staff
  • Official

The other role types are then for League/Area Association or FAW use.

Player Registrations on COMET

The most common role type on COMET.

In the 2019-20 season just over 85,000 people were registered as a player in Wales.

All players must be registered on COMET and in line with FIFA rules a player can only play for one club at a time.

If you have any queries relating to player registrations, please contact the FAW at registrations@faw.co.uk

There is no limit to the number of different Coach registrations an individual can hold on COMET - whether for the same or multiple organisations.

The Coach role on COMET relates to an individual being linked to a specific team within an organisation and is subject to approval by the FAW as minimum qualifications are required at a number of levels of the game in Wales.
