England Football Accreditation

 

WELCOME TO England football accreditation

England Football Accredited Leagues and England Football Accredited Clubs set the standards, raise the bar and fly the flag of respect and diversity for football in England.  

 

Being Accredited helps you attract players, coaches, and volunteers with tailored support to build the strong, sustainable, successful league or club you want to be.  

 

England Football Accredited Leagues and England Football Accredited Clubs lead the game by example. They’re safer, stronger, more effective and more enjoyable places to play and enjoy football. 

 

When you’re Accredited, you’re not just part of it, you’re the beating heart of it. 

 

Existing FA Charter Standard Leagues and Clubs will automatically become an England Football Accredited League or England Football Accredited Club.  

 

Over the coming months, in partnership with The FA, we will prepare you for the opportunities ahead.

SAFEGUARDING IS EVERYONE'S RESPONSIBILITY
