Have your say: Grassroots Football survey

The 2018/19 Grassroots Football Survey has been opened today by the FA. Have your say on improving the beautiful game. 


The 2018/19 Grassroots Football Survey has today been announced by The Football Association [The FA].

The online survey, which is now in its fourth season after being launched in 2015/16, provides players, coaches, match officials, parents, supporters, volunteers, club and league officials with an opportunity to share their experiences of community football and highlight potential opportunities for improvement.   

To date, almost 90,000 participants have voiced their opinions on the grassroots football provision in their local area and helped to inform the allocation of investment and resources by The FA and County FAs.

Martin Glenn, The FA’s Chief Executive Officer, said: "The Grassroots Football Survey has grown season-on-season. Since its introduction in 2015/16, it has given us greater insight and understanding of the community football landscape, which has helped us shape and improve our decision-making processes across the grassroots game.     

"Community football facilities are the perfect example. Despite a number of excellent programmes in place, feedback from previous surveys has repeatedly shown many are inadequate and require further investment. Whilst happy with the availability of grass pitches, participants generally report they are of poor quality. This key information from within the game allows us to prioritise development and resources in these areas.       

"This season we want to reach more participants than ever before and make improvements necessary to ensure the continuous development of grassroots football in this country."     

Caroline McRoyall, Surrey FA’s Chief Executive Officer, said “The Grassroots Football Survey is key to us understanding the ever-changing grassroots world, and best serving the thriving football community across Surrey.

From meaningful changes in the way we work as an organisation, through to the ongoing evaluation of our priorities, feedback from those across the game really does help us to improve.
