Own It

Make Your Club A Great Club

Does your club want more support? More funds? Better equipment? If the answer is yes we think you should consider becoming accredited

The Charter Standard programme is The FA’s accreditation scheme open to all grassroots clubs and leagues. It aims to raise standards in the game by supporting the development of clubs and leagues, recognising and rewarding commitment, quality and achievement.

Clubs who achieve The FA Charter Standard status are proud to be the best places for people to play and enjoy football. Places where people can develop skills, keep fit and enjoy being part of a friendly, inclusive community.

Does this sound like your club? Or what you want your club to be?

Once you’re accredited you will have access to benefits including: 

  • Help attracting players, supporters and volunteers 
  • Funding for facilities, sustainability and growth
  • Kit and equipment
  • Access to promotional resources and guidance 
  • And tailored support from your County FA.

Best of all it won’t cost you a thing. That’s right; there is no charge to become accredited. 

Clubs just need to meet certain criteria to have a successful application, but you may find you already meet some of these or you are not far away from achieving them. 

We can support you to get accredited and guide you through what you need to do.
