WHAT IS IT?

When you first join a club and become a member of the EBU

you also become a member of the county to which the club is

affiliated. This is known as your County of Primary Allegiance.

WHY DOES IT MATTER?

If you wish to represent a county in certain events, such as

the Corwen, Pachabo, Tollemache and Inter-County League, it

must be your County of Primary Allegiance.

CAN I CHANGE IT?

Yes. There are a number of reasons why a player would have

a different County of Primary Allegiance than the one they live

in, or the one to which their club is affiliated. You are

permitted to change your County of Primary Allegiance once

per season (September 1st to August 31st) providing that you

have not already represented that County in a representative

event. To change your County of Primary Allegiance please

telephone the EBU on 01296 317200. Please note that a small

number of counties have specific requirements for

membership such as living or working in the county.

CAN I BE A MEMBER OF MORE THAN ONE COUNTY?

Yes. Some players want to play in events in other counties for

which they must be members. This is called Dual or Associate

Membership. Some counties charge a fee for Dual

Membership, and some do not. There may also be conditions

attached to membership, which you will be advised of when

joining. However, this does not affect your County of Primary

Allegiance, so you cannot represent a County of which you are

a Dual Member in the Corwen, Pachabo, Tollemache and InterCounty

League.

MORE DETAILS?

www.ebu.co.uk/competitions/regulations/county-allegiance.

Membership of a county in any one financial year implies the

right to represent that county in the balance of the playing

season in the following financial year.
