The Jersey Football Association (JFA) has stressed its application for membership of UEFA, is a "serious one", ahead of it going to Congress in Bratislava next week.
In a letter to members of the Congress, the President of the JFA has outlined their case and the journey the group have been on to try and secure membership.
The JFA submitted an application to UEFA in December 2015, which was later rejected by the Executive, due to the island not meeting certain requirements.
On appeal, the Court of Arbitration for Sport found in favour of the application being heard by the wider membership at Congress.
Sporting stars from across Jersey have also come together to support the campaign, including Jersey Sport CEO Catriona McAllister, local footballers Sophie Botterill and Tom Murray, and Jersey Cricket Board CEO Chris Minty.
