England Football Accreditation

Accredited. Part of England Football.

Football leagues and clubs, accredited by The FA, have positively changed the football landscape over the last 20 years. They create the ideal environments to nurture players, coaches, and volunteers. The result is greater diversity and inclusivity through football.

England Football Accredited Leagues and 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 football in your community.

England Football Accredited replaces The FA Charter Standard and is the next chapter in this amazing story as we unite even more communities by supporting Leagues and Clubs over the next ten years.

England Football Accredited is for all non-professional leagues and clubs. It helps them create the experiences and environments where players, coaches and volunteers can thrive.

All accredited clubs offer a consistent standard on and off the pitch. Stars are used in accreditation to recognise clubs that provide more opportunities for more people to play.

Accredited clubs are more sustainable, more resilient and built to last. To find out how your club can grow your way with England Football Accredited, download our brochure.
