Devon County FA is the not-for-profit body responsible for the development and governance of grassroots football in Devon since 1888. We work with the FA to deliver the national game strategy in our county, in line with our vision of enhancing live through football in Devon. We have developed a three year strategy (2021 to 2024) which outlines our plan and priorities for the next three years, up to 2024. We hope working together with members of the grassroots game and partners, that we can together deliver a strategy that everyone is proud of.

The Devon County FA workforce is divided into two sections, Football Development and Football Services.

The Football Development team’s main role is to increase participation and standards across the County in all aspects of football, our friendly, vibrant knowledgeable Development team are on hand to offer their support in growing the game in Devon.

The Football Services department are here to oversee the rules, regulations and sanctions to provide a safe and structured environment for all our, clubs, leagues, referees, players and volunteers.

Working together with all our volunteers we aim to provide a first class service so everyone in Devon can enjoy the beautiful game.
