2019/20 Grassroots Football Survey Announced by The FA

The FA has announced its annual survey for participants in Lancashire to provide their feedback on grassroots football

Players, coaches, parents, supporters, volunteers, referees, club and league officials across Lancashire now have the opportunity to highlight areas where they require support, suggest areas for improvement and outline the impact of particular campaigns or schemes.

Since the online survey was originally launched, the responses of more than 100,000 grassroots participants have helped to inform the decision making and allocation of resources by The FA and respective County FAs. Results from the 2018/19 edition identified five key areas – both on and off the pitch – where a renewed focus is required:

  1. Identify the resources and tools that clubs need the most support with
  2. Foster the right experience for participants at this level of the game
  3. Encourage young people to stay active in different roles across the game
  4. Ensure the RESPECT campaign has a positive impact on all participants
  5. Adapt to the changing nature of modern grassroots football

Simon Gerrard, CEO of Lancashire FA, said: "The Grassroots Football Survey is central to our plans on how we can improve everyone's experience of football within Lancashire."

"Over the years, we have received loud and clear messages on what you want improving across the region,  whether that's financial assistance in climbing up the coaching pathway through out coaching bursaries, offering support to our officials or more focus on the investment into facilities."

"This is your chance to tell us how we can improve your experience in football, and I'm looking forward to reading what you have to say and how we can continue to help and support your experiences in the National Game.
