How to Request a Jersey Number
1) Find your first and second preferences from the available numbers below.
2) Click on the Jersey Number Request button to submit your request.
Jersey Numbers for the new sky blue jerseys for season 2020 must be confirmed by the Club before new jerseys are purchased. This is to ensure the numbers are unique across each age group. This is to avoid number clashes in composite teams at tournaments and also when players move across teams within the age group (either during the same season or in-between seasons).
Once confirmed, players get to keep their jersey number for as long as they are playing in the same age group at Glen Eira FC.
➡ Jersey number requests are assessed based on various factors including, but not limited to: number availability, the how early the request was made, the willingness of family members to volunteer for team & club and any jersey numbers on existing jerseys.
➡ There’s no need to get the same number for your blue jersey as you have on your existing clash jersey. It’s nice to have and feel free to request it, but if it isn’t confirmed then don’t worry, it isn’t mandatory.
➡ Families with more than one child playing who like to hand jerseys down, might consider requesting the same number for each child.
➡ Players who might occasionally play in different age groups (Eg. filling in when there are player shortages), can avoid a number clash in both age groups by submitting a separate request for each age group where the player might play. NOTE: The number has to be between 40 and 99 for these dual age group requests.
Jersey number requests are staged in order to minimise contention for available numbers.
Stage ① from 7th January: For players whose parents are appointed volunteers. Eg. Committee members, Coordinators, Coaches, Team Managers, Assistant Coaches. etc.
Stage ② from 17th January: For players who played for Glen Eira FC in 2019 and have submitted an Expression of Interest for 2020.
Stage ③ from 27th January: For players who are new to the Club who have paid their membership fee.
