The Football Association
Football is a game for all, where anyone can change the world. That might seem a bold claim. But we know it is true. Just look at how football steps up when times are tough. It provides education and empowerment, escapism and enjoyment. Promoting health and well-being, and the power of teamwork. And with our new strategy for 2020-2024, we have a plan for all. Positively impacting every community across the country. Everyone can win if we build on the progress made over the previous four seasons. In that time, we doubled the number of women and girls playing and watching. And saw encouraging performances from young and exciting England teams.
We created more youth teams, helped build more facilities – driving record investment back into football. We’ve moved forward in every area, modernising our organisation to serve a game for all. We have a great platform to build on. We will keep pushing forward. It’s time to deliver real change.
Our new strategic plan through to 2024 aims to take The FA and English football forward with bold leadership and ambitious targets to build on the progress of the past four years. We cannot do it alone. Our vision remains to bring all parts of the game even closer together and leave a nation inspired. We have a unique ability to unite all parts of society – just cast your mind back to Russia 2018 or France 2019, when men’s and women’s FIFA World Cup fervour gripped the nation. Using our people and culture as the catalyst, we achieved some amazing things on our mission to rebuild The FA as a world class organisation – from doubling participation in the women’s and girls’ game to registering more than one million of our grassroots players online – a material step into the digital age. Looking towards 2024, our strategic plan builds on those strong foundations.
