Kent FA's Technology Support Programme

New support available to clubs when it comes to utilising technology.

Kent FA Launch Technology Support Programme!

With over £10,000 of investment from Kent FA and The FA, four new Technology Mentors will each dedicate over 100 hours of support in the first project of its kind in the country.

This investment comes on the back of listening to the feedback from our clubs, league and individuals regarding the increasing use of FA technology systems, but lack of support in doing so. This will see the level of support that Kent FA offer around Whole Game System, Full-Time and Matchday App increase significantly.

Following extensive recruitment and training we are delighted to have a team of four talented individuals that are passionate about supporting others, knowledgeable about the FA technology systems and ideally placed as current grassroots volunteers themselves.
