Manchester FA Coaches Membership

Back and BIGGER than ever!

Manchester FA Coaches Membership is back and its BIGGER than ever! 

Now entering its third year, our Coaches Membership scheme is now open for the 2021/22 season and this year’s membership gives coaches an opportunity to commit to their development by access exclusive benefits, events, and training across the year. 

Once again, we are delighted to share that Mike Phelan is our confirmed ambassador – bringing with him a wealth of experience and knowledge that will be shared through a number of events. 

Mike Phelan said "I'm delighted to once again be the ambassador for this seasons' Manchester FA Coaches Membership scheme. This is a city which loves its football - and coaches are the people who lift the game to the next level".

Benefits of this years scheme includes; 

Coaches Membership Benefits

All of this and more can be yours for just £30 for the season (£200 worth of benefits alone!) and we are continually looking for further benefits to include.


I have been part of the Coaches Membership for the last couple of years.  I have attended a few of the courses put on by the MFA pre pandemic and not only were they run brilliantly a but the sessions really engaging allowing some open questioning and a real sense of listening.  In the last 12 months the only sessions as difficult as they are to do, but bringing in quality guest speakers like Mike Phelan and having open ability to talk to him was just fantastic, thank you MFA.
