What is an Amalgamation?

Team Amalgamation

Combining two or more teams from 2 or more clubs within the same county, to form a new team amalgamation to compete in competitions. For example; Team A can combine with Team B to create Team C. 

Club Amalgamation

Combining two or more clubs from the same county to form a new club to compete in competitions. Club A can combine with Club B to create club C. When club C has been created, all members and club information from clubs A and B will be moved over to club C. Clubs A and B will then be removed from the system. 

We strongly advise that you only add a club amalgamation if the clubs being amalgamated are ceasing to exist and they are no longer required on the system as separate clubs.
