who we are
London FA is the governing body for football in London.
We have vision to harness the power of grassroots football to enrich more lives in London and do this by governing, safeguarding and developing the grassroots game to ensure the best and most welcoming football experiences for all across the capital.
Our new five-year strategy (2019-24) has four main goals at its heart:
- Create a safer environment for people to thrive
- Leading the growth of structured football in London
- Developing a workforce as diverse as the city itself
- Improving our business to better serve our members
The FA's Respect programme provides a series of tools for leagues, clubs, coaches, players and parents from grassroots to elite football - to help ensure a safe, positive environment in which to play the game.
As of the start of the 2019/20 season, temporary dismissals - otherwise known as 'sin bins' - will be utilised at all levels of the game from Step 7 and below.
Make sure you're aware of how they work and how they're implemented within matches.
Rules and Regulations
FA Rules and Regulations ensure fair play in the grassroots game, both on and off the pitch. Find information about the following areas here.
