Leagues & Clubs
Many Teams, One Community
a sporting community
Developing and governing
Clubs are centres of activity where you unite as a team to cooperate towards a common goal. Bring clubs together to compete in leagues and you're part of an even wider community.
It's also important to stay fit and active for our well being in both mind and body, so to do that with your friends and family is a rewarding experience. Football can be a highlight of your week so we support the game in a safe and enjoyable environment.
Football creates new relationships, enhances energy levels and gives individuals the chance to play out their dreams! To attract new clubs we provide support with coach education and assist with finding somewhere to play or train.
We offer our experience and guidance with funding applications for cash to help cover the costs of setting-up new teams as well as helping to form club structures and supplying information on local leagues.

raising club standards
Existing clubs also receive benefits each season, including access to the rewards of FA Charter Standard status, an accreditation scheme which supports development by recognising clubs and leagues for their commitment and achievements. We also provide a disciplinary structure and insurance. If you'd like to find out more about how we can help to support your new or existing club, please get in touch.
how we lead in football
importance of Respect
When successfully promoted leagues and clubs can recruit and retain more referees, players and teams by providing a more enjoyable playing environment.
Football is for all and should be enjoyed in a safe, fun and inclusive environment, where you and I can play our part. We want to embed Respect right the way through Essex football.
