Cost of playing in LePa consists of
- Monthly team fee
- Annual Club membership fee
- Player license and insurance
Team fees covers most of the team's activities. The most significant costs are coaching, which is done by professional full-time coaches, and the training in quality conditions. In addition, the team fee pays match activities and other running costs. Monthly team fee varies from 40 euros to 100+ euros. The teams can also do fund-raising to reduce the fee.
The club membership fee funds all the club services teams get, support from executive officer and heads of coaching, training of team officials and parent coaches, and it covers all the costs of league matches. General club costs are also funded from other sources such as city, football camps and partners. Club membership is invoiced once per season (Nov 1 to Oct 31). In 2024, LePa's membership fee is 160 euros with discounts for those joining in June or later.
All players also need a player license from Finnish FA and insurance. It's price depends on age.
You can apply help for the costs from LePa's support fund by sending a free-form application to Executive officer.
