Volunteering in Hertfordshire football

Volunteers are the backbone of grassroots football 

Without the time, dedication and commitment that volunteers demonstrate each and every week across our county, clubs and leagues would simply not exist
A football club or league is about more than just the players on the pitch. Volunteers are the ones that really make football happen, giving others the opportunity to enjoy playing the game and helping to create the next generation of sporting stars.

It’s often the case that a few people at a club do a lot of the work – so new volunteers will usually be more than welcome. There are lots of different roles that need to be done, so you don't even need to know all about the game to be a real help.

Could you become a grassroots hero in Hertfordshire's thriving football community?

  • Making new friends from all walks of life
  • Working as a team towards a goal
