The Cheshire Football Association, also simply known as Cheshire FA, is the governing body of football in the county of Cheshire, England. They are responsible for the governance and development of football at all levels in the county.

About[edit]

The Cheshire Football Association is the not-for-profit governing body for all football in Cheshire and is responsible for the governance, organisation, education and development of grassroots football.

Cheshire FA works in conjunction with the National Football Association and is an enterprising and dynamic SME based in the heart of the county.

They have approximately 3500 teams playing various formats of affiliated football with over 60,000 weekly participants. The game is supported by over 1,000 referees and upwards of 10,000 volunteers running the game.

Cheshire FA works towards a strategic framework which looks to inwardly invest into key aspects of the game. Over £24 million pounds has been invested into facilities supporting the local football infrastructure and over £4 million pounds into revenue projects.[1]

In 2000 the association became incorporated and seven Directors were appointed with responsibility for business and financial matters, leaving the traditionally elected Council, through a number of Standing Committees, to retain full responsibility for all football related activities.

On the 30th October 2003, Cheshire FA Headquarters & Football Development Centre was opened by the Chairman of The Football Association. A year later Cheshire FA Celebrated its 125th Anniversary and where presented with an address from the FA to record is appreciation of the outstanding services to the game rendered by the officers and members.

Following on from the European Learning Difficulties European Championships in 2008 Cheshire FA was formally recognised by the UEFA grassroots programme for the legacy work that was undertaken for and beyond the championships.

Currently, Cheshire FA employees a professional team of 24 staff.
