Club Support Programme


Club Support Programme

The Club Support programme aims to promote good governance, and a sustainable approach to club administration and management.

In terms of defining what ‘good’ governance is, the FAI will be looking at aspects of clubs such as –

  • Governance and Administration
  • Volunteers
  • Grounds, Facilities and Equipment
  • Information and Communication
  • Sponsorship & Fundraising
  • Players, Teams and Coaching
  • Community Links

Throughout the development of the Club Support programme, standards and benchmarks will be applied to guide the clubs involved in the first year of implementation, and also give other clubs a level to aim for.

Clubs involved in the programme must agree to work towards attaining these standards, and will be recognised for that achievement. 

The ultimate goal of the Club Support programme is that all affiliated clubs in Ireland will achieve this target in the coming years.
