Please note, players will be unavailable for appearances between May and July 2017.
Only requests via the designated player appearance request form will be considered. Verbal, letter or email requests will not be taken into consideration. 

At least four weeks notice is required (exceptions will be made at the discretion of the club). 
New requests will always take priority over repeat requests and visits should be an absolute maximum of one hour, with 30 minutes the preference.

Requests will be assessed according to strict player availability. No appearances will be granted as follows:

• No player requests during international break
• Before 2pm on a training day
• 48 hours before a match
• 24 hours following a game 
• On travel days (day before away games) 
• On Fridays, matchdays or Sundays
• No player requests during international break
• Activities with risk of injury

IMPORTANT: ALL Player requests are granted at the discretion of the management and their decision is final.  Players should be permitted to refuse to attend events due to moral reasons.

Player appearances should complement the event and not form the main focus of it. 

If events are re-scheduled by the organiser, then the organiser should reimburse the club/player costs incurred to that point’

If your request is successful, the club will make contact with the event organiser. A briefing will take place one week prior to the event to ensure the player is fully aware of their role and any points can be clarified.

All player appearances are subject to change. 

Failure to follow this policy will automatically mean your request is denied.
