New Investment for Clubs & Coaches

Grassroots clubs are at the heart of what we do. The FA are investing in 150 non-league clubs to become community club hubs and ensuring every youth and mini-soccer team in the country has a Level 1 coach. More information and the developments of this will be communicated over the coming Months. More investment has also gone into other areas of the game.

Are membership fees eligible for Gift Aid?

Clubs which have adopted charitable status (registered with the Charity Commission) or community amateur sports club status (known as ‘CASC’, registered with HMRC) are able to benefit from significant tax reliefs thereby making them more attractive to prospective donors.




What does GDPR mean for grassroots clubs?

The FA has been working closely with our legal helpline service provider Muckle LLP to provide support to clubs around GDPR. This support will be in the form of fact sheets, articles and a series of six easy-to-use online training modules that last approximately 15 minutes each. The first four are available to view immediately and the remainder will appear on the website during the course of February.
