FAI Club Mark is a three-tier accreditation for grassroots football clubs who want to improve best practice and overall operations of their club. The award is based on three pillars, Club Governance and Administration, Player & Coach development, how your club provides Opportunities for Underage Players.
The FAI Club Development Programme is split into two sections, FAI Club Project and FAI Club Mark. Both sections of the FAIs Club Development Programme are designed to guide your club on areas of best practice and will help to assist your club in various areas of growth.
