Get into Volunteering

Share your skills

There are many reasons to volunteer in football. Volunteers make the grassroots game happen and create the next generation of sporting stars.

You could be giving back, but you’ll also be helping make football happen. Without people like you, grassroots simply wouldn’t exist!

Reasons to Volunteer

Not only is becoming a volunteer rewarding to the club or league your volunteering with, but it can also bring a number of personal benefits, including:

  • You can develop new and existing skills
  • You'll meet new people
  • You'll be helping to develop and grow grassroots football

The FA and County FA volunteering roles
Most volunteering roles in grassroots football clubs can be undertaken with no experience, although some roles do require training and safeguarding checks.

There are lots of different roles required to run a football club, from physical roles such as coach, to behind the scenes roles such as secretary or treasurer.
