The FA were the first national governing body in English sport to introduce a regional code of governance, which sets a higher precedence than the current gold standard for sport and aims to provide support and guidance to those running the grassroots game up and down the country.

It takes elements from Tier 3 of the Sport England code of governance - the current gold standard - adapting and elevating them further to work specifically for football at every level of a County FA.

The code outlines key requirements underpinned by five key principles: structure; people; communication; standards and conduct; and policies and processes.

Here at Westmorland County FA we are currently working towards achieving the Code of Governance for Sport.
