Who will you nominate for the Grassroots Football Awards? Acknowledge those devoted to the game.

The Grassroots Football Awards offer a chance to express gratitude to those dedicating their time to football. Volunteers who tirelessly contribute, rain or shine, deserve recognition for the significant and small moments they bring to the grassroots game.

By nominating them, you convey your appreciation for their time, energy, and innovative ideas that make the grassroots game exceptional. Let them know they are valued by everyone around them. Even a simple 'thank you' nomination makes them feel like a winner.

This year, the process is simpler. Share their story by informing us:

  • What they do and how it impresses you

  • How they make a difference in others' lives

  • Where they've had an impact in their community

Submit your nominations via the England Football website by April 3.

How the Awards Operate The awards encompass 12 categories, celebrating outstanding contributions from individuals, clubs, leagues, and projects in grassroots football.

  • Club of the Year

  • League of the Year

  • Match Official of the Year

  • Young Volunteer of the Year

  • New Volunteer of the Year

  • Coach of the Year - Female Pathway

  • Coach of the Year - Male Pathway

  • Coach of the Year - Disability Pathway

  • Grounds Team of the Year

  • The Lioness Award

  • Keeping Football Positive Award

  • Bobby Moore Award

Each County FA selects a local winner for each category from area nominations, forming a shortlist for national winners chosen by an FA judging panel.

Beyond heartfelt thanks, national 2024 Award winners will enjoy a unique experience.

Making Your Nomination Matter. We aim to honour those embodying the best of football, applying these qualities to enrich local communities. Consider who impressed you, how they made a positive impact, and what they did to achieve it.

Best wishes,

Steve Halls
