The DDSL have introduced a new system to register players with the DDSL and FAI.

  • For the season 2023 – 2024, all players must be registered on the DDSL portal which opened on the 1st August 2023.

  • This is for boys and girls playing DDSL league games U8 to U18.

  • It does NOT apply to our U7boys and girls academy players.

  • All parents must upload a picture, ID (passport/Birth cert) and pay a league fee of €30.

It is necessary to do this before a player is eligible to play league games. Harolds Cross YFC have access to all their players only who have registered via the portal and will allocate them to their team. The registration will only be complete when the club has allocated the player to a team.

The €30 covers FAI/LFA/SFAI fees, player insurance, and contribution to DDSL charity Childline. It also includes contributions to the running costs of the DDSL league, where there has been significant investment in full-time admin staff and IT.

If you are a member of Harolds Cross YFC and are playing in a Harolds Cross YFC team this season you need to register. If you are a new player to Harolds Cross YFC, you must confirm with your team manager before registering.

Please go to and select Harolds Cross YFC to register your player.
