FA launches new grassroots football survey

The Football Association has launched their most comprehensive survey of grassroots football to date and they want you to get involved.

The FA has called on people from right across the grassroots game – from players and coaches to referees and officials – to complete the survey and help them develop their most detailed picture yet of the views and experiences of the ‘s 400-000 volunteers who make up the national game.

The survey follows hot on the heels of the FA’s latest national game strategy and the report of the FA Chairman’s Commission, which outlined an ambitious £230m plan to develop football hubs in 30 cities nationwide by 2020.

FA Chief Executive Martin Glenn said: “We are on the cusp of a real revolution within grassroots football and, as we move forward, it is vital we ensure that we are listening to those that it impacts upon directly.

“Our new four year strategy has been designed to be adaptable to ensure that we are able to meet the key objectives we have set. This will be achieved through listening as well as acting.

“The grassroots football audience consists of a cross section of diverse communities and this survey will help us ensure we service these groups efficiently via a range of methods, from inclusion initiatives to implementing technology.

“And, as we build on the increases in boys and girls participation and growth in disability football, feedback from such a large sample group will help us refine our goals and targets.”

Completing the survey should take around 10 minutes and will enter you into a prize draw to win four Club Wembley tickets to see England take on France at Wembley on Tuesday 17 November 2015, with four general admission tickets to the same game up for grabs as runner-up prizes.

To have your on the grassroots game and give yourself a chance of winning the prize draw, you can complete the survey here. Deadline for responses is 30 October 2015.
