England Football Accredited is the new framework for League and Club accreditation, and replaces The FA Charter Standard.

It is an opportunity for The FA and County FAs to recognise all Leagues and Clubs who raise the bar and set the tempo for football to thrive in England. It enables us to work with our League network to offer modern competitions that meet the needs of today’s game, while simultaneously creating maximum opportunities for everyone who enjoys the game to participate. Regardless of background, ability, skin colour, gender, sexual orientation or age: we unite everyone and strive to give the very best of ourselves.

As an accredited League or Club, you will automatically be transitioned on to the new England Football framework.

It’s there to keep things accessible, sustainable and safe, helping you to successfully run football off the pitch so that football is great on the pitch. Day by day, week by week, season after season: the very best footballing experiences for you and for everyone
