Kent FA is the not-for-profit, governing body of football in Kent which runs Representative teams and County Cup competitions.
We grow participation, promotes diversity and regulates the game for everyone to enjoy. Over 45,000 players of all ages and 15,000 volunteers help Kent FA keep the grassroots game going.
Kent FA is recognised by The FA as one of the leading County FAs in the country. Kent FA supports football at all levels in the county and has successfully developed outstanding business and community partnerships. For example, Kent FA won a prestigious 2015 Kent Excellence in Business Award in the 'Business Commitment to the Community' category. The judges recognised Kent FA as an innovative organisation, with: ‘The passion for making grassroots football accessible for all.’
Kent FA is dedicated to improve services to the benefit of all who are involved in football in Kent. There are many challenges to be faced. Not least is the Government’s requirement to see a return from their own investment in sport. Some of the specific local challenges include attracting new volunteers and ensuring that there are sufficient, high quality football pitches available for community use.
There is significant housing growth planned for Kent. Consequently, more high quality outdoor sports facilities will be needed to meet the needs of both existing and new communities. Kent FA already works with many Local Authorities to plan new and improved football facilities and is committed to encourage even greater participation in football, for people of all ages and abilities.
