Diversity and Inclusion
Making football open and accessible for all
The FA and Surrey FA are here to ensure everyone who is involved in football has a great experience – regardless of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, ability or disability, faith or age.
Both The FA and the County FAs are working to ensure everyone has the opportunity to be part of the game. We will all work together on our inclusion priorities over the coming years. These are underpinned by three principles of change:
- ensuring governance and leadership is diverse and modern
- removing any obstacles to access and progression in coaching, talent development or personal development pathways
- enshrining equality, diversity and inclusion in our day to day operations.

Discriminatory behaviour under FA Rules means conduct or language that is aggravated by ethnic origin, colour, race, nationality, faith, gender, gender reassignment, sexual orientation or disability.
