The 2018 Grassroots Football Survey has today been announced by The Football Association, giving you the chance to help shape the future of the game
Simply by completing this online survey players, coaches, match officials, parents, supporters, volunteers, club and league officials have an opportunity to share their experiences of community football and highlight potential opportunities for improvement.
Now in its fourth season, 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.
"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."
George Wells, Hertfordshire FA Operations Manager and Acting CEO said: "This survey is a great opportunity for everyone to have their say on our national game. We hope as many people as possible will take the opportunity to share their views on their experience of grassroots football.
Customer insight is absolutely vital in helping us deliver a tailored service to meet the needs of the game in Hertfordshire. The results of this survey directly influence our decision making, helping us to understand what matters most to our community. This key information from within the game allows us to prioritise development and resources in these areas.
For example, last year people told us that they felt there was not enough support to help teams in financial difficulty survive, so we made funding available specifically aimed at this group.”
