The FA’s grassroots football survey

The FA has launched the most comprehensive survey of grassroots football it has ever undertaken.

Contributions are being sought from parents of youth players, players, coaches, referees as well as the staff and volunteers that form the 400,000-strong grassroots football workforce, and will give the fullest picture yet of the experiences and views of those involved in the national game.
