Grassroots football is any football where the main driver is the love of the game and all the social and health benefits from playing, coaching, refereeing and volunteering. Essentially, this covers all non professional and non-elite football.
Specifically, the term excludes professional football played in the Premier League, English Football League (EFL) and top two tiers of the Women’s Football Pyramid. The National League System holds a unique position as the transition point between the men’s grassroots and professional game.
