Sport England calls for grassroots football views

If you play your football in England, the Football Association and Sport England want to know about your experience of playing the game.

Sport England – the agency charged with building the foundations of sporting success – has commissioned Ipsos MORI to conduct this important survey and are calling on adults in the grassroots football community to give up a little time to share their views.

The survey will help the Football Association, through their partnership with Sport England, understand more about your experiences and the challenges facing the grassroots game, whilst helping shape the game in England as they work to deliver the National Game Strategy 2011 – 2015.

Sport England Chief Executive Jennie Price said: “Taking part in the study is important for you, your sport and Sport England, so please take this opportunity to let us know your views and preferences.”

As an extra incentive, all those completing the survey will also be entered into a free prize draw to win either £100, £150 or £250 of ‘Love2shop’ vouchers, valid in over 20,000 stores across the UK.

The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete and is open until 7 May 2012. To share your views on football with Sport England and the FA, click here to take the survey.

    It’s all about winning!!!! and nothing else…….very negative experience, wouldn’t recommend it. just destroyed any self esteem my son had. my greatest regret was not making him leave.

    The survey is worthwhile and thought provoking, stick with it though as it can be long if you do lots of sports and stays at 50% for a long time

    Don’t bother to try and fill in survey if you live outside England because once you say you are living outside of England the survey will stop.
