In this football language post we look at the phrase ‘to register a win‘. You can also check out our glossary of footballing phrases here and visit our site to access all our previous posts and podcasts. If you have any suggestions or questions then you can contact us at admin@languagecaster.com.

This expression means to accomplish or to attain something and in football usually collocates with the words ‘win’ or ‘victory’. So, if a team has registered a win it means that they have won a game. Sometimes we might hear this expression when a team finally gets their first win of the season or maybe after a run of defeats – they finally registered a victory.
