Information for BBFA Clubs
Why be or be part of an England Football Accredited Club?
England Football Accredited Clubs set the standards, raise the bar, and fly the flag of respect and diversity for football in England. If you join an Accredited club, you know that the club is built to last, is strong and sustainable. They lead by example and provide a safer, stronger, more effective, and more enjoyable place to play and enjoy football.
You have peace of mind that the club has all the correct policies and procedures in place, and you know that the coaches are fully FA qualified.

A club’s accreditation lasts for one season. An annual renewal must be completed yearly to review a club’s status. The Accredited status may be withdrawn if the club has a poor disciplinary record or no longer meets the criteria.
Full guidance on how to complete the renewal is available here.
