The National Football Facilities Strategy (NFFS) sets out the Football Foundation’s ambition to transform England’s grassroots game over the next ten years. It aims to deliver thousands of new pitches, while also investing in the improvement of existing grass pitches and off-pitch facilities across the country.
The FA, Premier League and Sport England have developed the national strategy to guide our facilities investment priorities over the next ten years and unlock the power of football to transform more lives.
The NFFS includes all Local Football Facility Plans, the Grass Pitch Improvement Strategy, and the Football Stadia Improvement Fund.
It focuses on the four main facility types that will have a major impact on grassroots football: grass pitch improvement, 3G football turf pitches, changing rooms and pavilions, and small-sided spaces.
