FA look to diversify grassroots football through Youth Council survey
The Football Association (FA) and its National Youth Council are conducting research to gain a better understanding of the diversity of our current and future volunteer workforce and young people involved in football across England.
The Youth Council are a group within The FA that provide a voice for young people in the game, with of the aim of developing football for future generations in the country.
The survey aims to understand the views of young people, aged 16-25, that are interested in the game whether they play, volunteer, watch football, or whether they chose not to.
Sarah Nickless, chairperson of the National Youth Council, said: “It’s important that as a council we are support every young person in the game, to have a positive experience, and get from it what they wish. The ‘Youth Diversity Survey’ allows us to monitor how well we are doing this and how we can better support the diverse range of groups in football.”
Those who complete the survey will have the chance to win two England tickets to a game at Wembley Stadium.
The survey runs from 22 November to 14 December 2017. If you are aged between 14-25 and would like to complete the survey click here.
