The FA has released its plan to increase Asian inclusion and participation in grassroots football, titled 'Bringing Opportunities to Communities'. Copies can be downloaded from www.TheFA.com
This three year plan which is part of The FA's wider Inclusion & Anti-Discrimination strategy and is a culmination of the eight consultation forums delivered with Asian communities last year, reflecting the findings made during these sessions and how The FA and stakeholders within the game can work more inclusively to ultimately create better representation for Asian communities within grassroots football.
The FA would like to express its appreciation for the feedback and support from both Asian communities and other stakeholders who made this work possible.
If you have any questions on the plan or how you can get involved please let us know.
