If your non-league football team plays in a league that is managed on the FA Full Time system, then it is possible to use the system to add your fixtures, results and league table to your website. The beauty of doing it this way is that you never have to update it as all of the information is pulled from FA Full Time.
In this guide, we walk you through the steps to get the required code from FA Full Time and then how to add to your WordPress website.
Get The Embed Codes
The first stage is get the relevant code snippet from FA Full Time. Once you have logged in, then select Media > Code Snippets.
Once you are in the Code Snippets section, you can the select the type of information you want to display along with some minimal customisation options.
The corresponding HTML code is then displayed along with a preview. If you need to make any tweaks, select the Back button, otherwise copy this code.
Adding To Your WordPress Website
In this example, we are going to show you how to add the HTML code to a WordPress website. However, the principle will be similar for other website builders.
First, create the webpage on which you want to display the information, then add a new block and search for the “Custom HTML” block.
Once this block has been added, you can then paste in the HTML code that you copied from the FA Full Time website.
Clicking Preview will enable you to see how the information will be displayed.
From this point on, it is just a matter of adding any other headings or text to your webpage and clicking Publish.
As you can see from this guide, it is easy to embed fixtures, results and league table onto your non-league football club website.
If you are a Step 4 or higher club, then you can do similar using Football Web Pages. FWP has the option to embed more information such as Goal Scorers and Appearances.
Whilst working on the Binfield FC website, we used a mixture of FA Full Time and Football Web Pages depending on the team. FA Full Time for the U23 Development Side and Football Web Pages for the First Team.
