Grassroots Football Awards

If you aren't already aware, nominations are now open for The FA and McDonald’s Grassroots Football Awards 2018.

The awards recognise how grassroots leagues, clubs, volunteers and community projects play their part in making the nation’s favourite game happen week in and week out up and down the country. Nominations capture The FA’s ‘For All’ ethos and will be judged upon The FA’s values of Progressive, Respectful, Inclusive, Determined and Excellent, or PRIDE for short.

The awards categories this year are;
