A football club is about far more than the players on the pitch.

The FA is committed to supporting the volunteers in club football that make up the backbone of grassroots football.

A well-run club should feature the backroom staff of a secretary, treasurer, fundraisers, a welfare officer and a chairperson to oversee the club's constitution, as well as the frontline first aiders to act as physios and team coaches.

The FA recognises the value of volunteers and provides guidelines to clubs on how to recruit, retain and reward volunteers.
