England Football Accreditation
England Football Accreditation is the new framework for Club and League accreditation and replaces FA Charter Standard. England Football Accreditation helps clubs and leagues create the experiences and environments where players, coaches, officials, referees, volunteers and spectators can thrive. Accreditation is a clear signal to your community that you value the importance of being an accessible, safe and sustainable club or league. England Football Accreditation is automatically awarded to all clubs and leagues that previously held FA Charter Standard.
