The FAI Club Mark is an award for grassroots clubs based on best practice in the governance, management and administration of a football club.
Clubs start their journey at Entry Level and can progress onto the One Star Award. Each step challenges the club to implement policies and procedures in line with best practice.
The FAI Club Mark is free and optional for clubs and aims to:
- Improve the management of clubs ‘off the field’
- Establish and promote best practice
- Empower and support clubs
- Recognise and reward clubs for achieving high standards
- Increase a club’s capacity to operate effectively and grow football in communities throughout Ireland.
