National governing body (NGB)

The Football Association

NGB contact: Kay Cossington

The Football Association gives priority to players with potential to compete in UEFA U17/U19 European Championships and FIFA World Cup qualification competitions.

The nomination process

SportsAid only supports unfunded athletes who are nominated by their sport's national governing body. This ensures the right athletes get the right help at the right time - enhancing the sports' talent development programmes rather than duplicating them. Nominations take place every autumn. You should contact your sport about whether you meet the criteria for the next round of SportsAid awards. Meeting the nomination criteria does not necessarily guarantee a SportsAid award because the charity can only distribute what it has fundraised.
