The FA Charter Standard League Programme delivers the vision of the FA Charter Standard Brand.

This vision is to offer everybody in grassroots football a high quality, safe, enjoyable experience that is nationally recognised. Watch the video above to see the full range of benefits. 

The programme helps to:

- Target investment
- Deliver an improved service and support structure to leagues
- Improve communication with leagues
- Ensure succession planning within leagues
- Rationalise existing league structures
- Help implement the principles of Long Term Player Development
- Grow football for under represented groups
- Improve efficiency and sustainability of leagues
- Deliver on the Respect Programme

The Charter Standard League Programme assesses the ability of leagues to provide a high quality, safe and enjoyable football experience against a standard set of criteria. It also encourages leagues to continuously develop through on-going support from County FA staff and the review and on-going development of a league development plan as part of an annual health check process.


The Charter Standard League Programme is open to all Sanctioned Leagues.
