Why host an FA FIVES event
By hosting an FA FIVES event in Round One you will be involved in creating England’s largest and most inclusive small-sided football festival in the summer of 2021.
It’s also a major football retention and recruitment opportunity in the build-up to UEFA EURO 2020. You can showcase your capability for hosting an engaging football event for the local community – deepening participation levels for existing players and kickstarting involvement for new players.
THE FA FIVES will be promoted nationally by The FA and BBC. All communications will direct thousands of grassroots players across the nation to sign up to FA FIVES events in their local area.
As well as event management and promotion toolkits, FA FIVES branding will be provided to every Event Host to promote their involvement in the national event and to dress the Round 1 weekend. All FA FIVES Event Hosts will receive a financial contribution towards the costs of delivering their event.
