With all football paused for the time being, now is a great time to spread some positivity and start nominating your local grassroots football heroes.
The FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards are for people who make a positive difference. It’s our way to celebrate the fantastic individuals who put their heart and soul into the grassroots game across England – and say a huge thank you to the incredible volunteers who inspire us all.
These volunteers have weathered the storm this season. With the floods and now the coronavirus pandemic, it’s more important than ever to recognise and thank them for their hard work and dedication in a challenging time.
The awards recognise and reward the people, clubs and leagues that deliver grassroots football throughout the country. Awards are split into categories, and County FAs select a local winner for each. These form a shortlist for The FA’s national winners, selected by a national judging panel.
All nominations will be judged with The FA’s PRIDE values in mind. These values and ways of behaving are what we all strive towards in grassroots football.
Progressive - always looking to improve and innovate
Respectful - leading by example to inspire positive behaviour
Inclusive - uniting all people of any age, ethnicity and background
Determined - rising to and overcoming challenges
Excellent - striving to make football the best it can be
To submit your nomination for any of the categories listed above, please follow the link below.
