Covid-19 Return Guidance STEP 3

We want your views!

Join our online conversation to help us shape football in Greater Manchester for the next four years!


As part of the planning process for our strategy for the 2024-2028 period, we are looking for feedback and input from you – our grassroots community.

The FA have recently conducted a nationwide consultation process called A Conversation About Our Game hosting a face-to-face workshop at Stockport County (as one of 10+ locations across the country) and collecting further data through an online survey. 

Following these sessions, results and findings have been provided to our volunteer workforce through Our Game In Manchester where we have been carefully considering the best way to support football across Greater Manchester over the next 4 years. As part of this process, we have created a number of surveys and online notice boards to provide our communities with further opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas on how to shape football for the future. 

We have created three notice boards (shown below), which cover, Players, Clubs & Leagues and Volunteers (including Referees, Coaches and Officials) - and it would be great to see comments and ideas posted for our review! 

In addition, there are already a number of surveys that we have open and these have been linked to the bottom of the relevant section where you can provide further context around your responses. 

All responses will be shared with Our Game In Manchester working groups for further review ahead of our new Grassroots Strategy publication which will be ready for the 2024-25 season onwards.
