“The FA is responsible for the development of the National Game. Part of this responsibility is to lead the establishment of simple to understand, free-to-access technical standards relating to all facility types – from pitch dimensions to goal sizes – for current and future formats of the game.”
Below you will find the most current standards for facilities covering everything from pitch dimensions to goal sizes. These standards reflect the different needs and aspirations of football at all levels within the national game and will be regularly maintained, updated and communicated across the grassroots game.
When using these documents please remember that The FA has a well-developed network of Regional Facilities Managers who are able to assist in offering guidance and advice with developing your facilities. Their contact details, along with those of the County Football Associations, are included below.
