Today The FA have launched 'Own It'; a new campaign aimed at encouraging eligible clubs to sign up to the The FA Charter Standard 'PROUD' accreditation scheme.
The campaign focusses on the hard work and dedication of clubs around the country in growing their football clubs and promotes gaining accrediation as the next step on the journey towards becoming a great club.
The Charter Standard programme is The FA’s accreditation scheme open to all grassroots clubs and leagues. It aims to raise standards in the game by supporting the development of clubs and leagues, recognising and rewarding commitment, quality and achievement.
Does your club want more support? More funds? Better equipment?
If the answer is 'yes' we think you should consider becoming accredited.
There is no charge to become accredited and our staff can support you through the process and guide you on what you need to do.

Once completed your new accreditation status will provide you with access to benefits including:
Help attracting players, supporters and volunteers
Funding for facilities, sustainability and growth
Kit and equipment
Access to promotional resources and guidance
And tailored support from our County FA.
Clubs who achieve The FA Charter Standard status are PROUD to be the best places for people to play and enjoy football. Places where people can develop skills, keep fit physically and mentally and enjoy being part of a friendly, inclusive community. So what are you waiting for?
'Own It. Make It. Shape It.' Don't settle for good. Make your club a great club, make it PROUD.
