The FA Anti-Doping Regulations

The FA has in place a set of Anti-Doping Regulations that all Players and other Participants must abide by. The Anti-Doping Regulations for The FA are consistent with the World Anti-Doping Code (the Code), the core document that harmonises anti-doping policies, rules and regulations within sport globally.

If you are a Participant of The FA then the Anti-Doping Regulations apply to you, regardless of what level you participate at. 

2021 World Anti-Doping Code

From 1 January 2021, a new version of the Code is in effect and it’s important that all Players and other Participants are aware of how this impacts them.

Under the 2021 Code, a Player may be classified as being “International-Level”, “National-Level” or a “Recreational” based on their competition level. Further information on these different categories is available on the UKAD website.
