Nominations Open For Grassroots Football Awards 2024

Nominations are open until 3 April 2024

The Grassroots Football Awards are here for you to say thank you to all the people and organisations who give their time to make football happen.

Our awesome volunteers who give so much week-in, week out, rain or shine - and they are for you, coaches, clubs, leagues, fellow volunteers, match officials and more to pass on your appreciation.

Across the Army FA we want to find these amazing people, share their story nationally and celebrate them and just say a huge thank you. You can nominate as many times as you like, in as many categories as you like.


• Club of the Year - An England Football Accredited Club that has developed on or off the pitch, to best serve its members.

• League of the Year - A League that has made the game better, by making football more accessible and enjoyable for more people.

• Match Official of the Year - Anyone with a role in the match official community that has helped promote a fairer game for all by showing respect and understanding.

This year, it’s easier than ever. You can now tell their story in a way you want simply by letting us know:

• What they do, and how it impresses you
• How they make a difference to others’ lives
• Where they’ve had an impact in their community

The more detail you give, the better.

So, let’s find the people who make football great in Army Football and they can win a National Award plus have the chance to go to be celebrated at Wembley.
