FA Full Time : Fixtures & Results
The Leeds & District Cup fixtures and results can be viewed on our FA Full Time website using the links below. Your league may also publish the Leeds & District FA cup fixtures on their website to indicate you have an external cup fixture. Always refer to our FA Full-Time website as this will contain the most up-to-date details for arranging the fixture and will show details of the appointed referee (if one is appointed).
The draw for each round of the Leeds & District FA cup competitions is performed every month by the cup committee. Our cup competitions are not drawn all the way through to the final and therefore it is not possible to predict who your opponents could be in the next round by viewing the FA Full-Time draw page.
Your team’s position in the cup draw is relative to the current round and will change after each cup draw is entered in our FA Full Time system.

Match Report Forms
Our FA Full-Time system is not integrated with the FA Whole Game System (WGS) or the FA Matchday application, therefore you will need to submit the Leeds & District FA Match Report Form for the District Cup fixtures. The Match Report Form is specific to each competition and contains the name of the teams who have entered this season.
On the day of the fixture complete and exchange your teamsheet as you do for your league fixtures. It is recommended to keep a copy of the opponent’s teamsheet should there be a dispute raised after the fixture.
After the completion of the fixture, enter the details in the Match Report Form in the sequence of the fields displayed on the form as some fields are dependant on others being selected. For guidance on marking the referee score, click here
When all of the required sections have been completed, click on the Submit button at the bottom of the page. All fields marked with * are required fields. You will not be able to submit the Match Report Form until all of the required fields are entered.

On the day of your fixture, the Leeds & District FA Full Time system will send a text message to the registered team administrator registered with the Leeds & District FA. If you do not receive a text message on the day of the fixture, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your result and include your team name and mention you did not receive the SMS text.
Your league may also include our fixtures on their website which will mean you will receive two or more texts. You must reply to all texts received on the day. If you are registered to receive result texts for more than one team you may also receive multiple texts on the day of the fixture. It is therefore important to add the Leeds & District FA team code after the score when replying to the text to ensure your result is successfully processed by the FA Full Time system.
The text must be submitted in one of the formats shown below ensuring that it is the HOME team score that is put first.
The following are examples of the text you will receive and how results should be sent in :
FA Full-Time Results: 100 v 115, Sat 15 Aug 14:00. Reply with H-A score and PENS if required:
To report a 2-1 win to the home side after full time you would simply reply with the score followed by your Leeds & District FA team code.
For example if your Leeds & District FA team code is 1oo and the full time result was 2-1 to the home side, you would rely with 2-1 100
To report a 1-1 draw at full time and 5-3 win on penalties to the home side you would simply reply with 1-1 5-3 PENS 100
IMPORTANT NOTE – You must leave no gap between the scores and the hyphen. Do not add any further text when submitting the result of the match as the text will not be processed successfully.
The Leeds & District FA Team Code will be emailed before each round of fixtures to the registered team administrator.
Both home and away teams must submit the result within 3 hours of the conclusion of the match by replying to the text from the Leeds & District FA Full Time system, which will be sent to the registered team administrator.
