Why is drinking banned from FIFA international fixtures?
Because of the number of tragedies that have occurred in stadia, FIFA saw fit to take radical measures, the ban of alcoholic beverages in the stadia being one of them.
Does The Football Association offer grants?
The Football Foundation has introduced a new simplified application form and fast track scheme for grants of £10,000 or under. Obviously grants of £10,000 require less information than those of £1,000,000 and the new application process allows the Foundation to quickly assess bids and offer grants within weeks. Our easy to use forms and guidance notes are available online at www.footballfoundation.org.uk, or by calling 0845 345 4555.
The Football Foundation is funded by the Premier League, The Football Association, Sport England and the Government, and is the nation's largest sports charity with a £53m budget going straight into the very heart of football.
The FA National Game Division is ploughing over £35 a year - £20m of which is invested into The Football Foundation - supporting community football, schools and further education colleges, heralding higher standards, better pitches, changing rooms and facilities and encouraging more people to enjoy football for life.
