Make Your Club A Great Club

Charter Standard accredited clubs gain access to a range benefits...and your club could too!

Does your club require more support? More funds? Better equipment? If the answer is "Yes!", then you should consider the benefits of Charter Standard accreditation

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

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 a range of 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 our County FA. 

And best of all? It won’t cost you a thing.

Clubs are only required 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.
