Get into Football
Get into Football is The FA's first campaign aimed at promoting our football development initiatives to all children and parents.
As the guardians of the game, it is The FA's role is to ensure there are opportunities for all to play the game and also engage people at all levels in off-the-field roles.
It's about doing things properly. About making sure everyone has a chance to be involved in football, regardless of ability, race, religion or background.
About encouraging and increasing the involvement of groups at all levels of football by recognising that inequalities exist and taking steps to address them. It's about making opportunities available where currently they are limited.
It is the work of our 270 football development officers locally that helps us to deliver our objectives of football for all. Wherever you live, football in your region is governed by your County Football Association and each has its own football development department whose job it is to develop local opportunities.
They are there on the other end of the phone or e-mail to support you to get into football.
