Reward your grassroots hero with FA Community Awards nomination

There are just over two weeks remaining to get nominations in for the 2016 FA Community Awards, presented by McDonald’s.

The awards are a firm fixture on the football calendar and this is the seventh year that the best clubs and volunteers are to be recognised.

Nearly 1,400 nominations have already been received, and this year anyone who puts the name forward of a worthy candidate also has a chance to be a winner – with all nominees' names going into a hat to scoop England men’s seniors tickets.

Nominate now!

Who is your grassroots hero?

All submissions must be received before 31 March and will result in automatic entry to the draw for one of six chances to win family tickets to an England friendly fixture in the build-up to the UEFA European Championship finals in France this summer.

There are seven award categories including Volunteer of the Year, FA Charter Standard Community Club of the Year and the coveted People’s Award, which last year was won posthumously by Glenn Weaver for his lifetime dedication to the development of women’s football.

Winners will be awarded in each county before regional winners are selected, who will then form the shortlist for the national finalists.

The national winners will be selected by a judging panel featuring legends of the game including McDonald's' head of English football Martin Keown and McDonald’s' director of football Sir Geoff Hurst.

FA chief executive Martin Glenn said: "As the nominations come in once again there is sure to be a wealth of examples of the many inspiring stories that exist within grassroots football. 

"The FA Community Awards, presented by McDonald’s serve as a fitting platform to recognise the clubs and the army of volunteers that make such a massive contribution to football."

Nominees are not limited to one selection; they can nominate more than one person/club/league.
