FAW McDonald's Grassroots Football Awards
Every year we celebrate grassroots football heroes with our McDonald’s FAW Grassroots Football Awards
The 2020 FAW Grassroots Football Awards celebrate the hard work of the unsung heroes who make football tick.
Every year, along with our partners McDonald's, we take nominations for award winners, across Wales, in the following categories...
VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR
Across Wales, every evening of the week and every weekend of the year, there are thousands of dedicated volunteers who go unnoticed. But these individuals are essential to our national game, so this prestigious award is a wonderful way to recognise the heroes. This could be anyone with any involvement in football be it a coach, organiser, administer, someone who helps others and grows the game.
COMMUNITY CLUB OF THE YEAR
This award is for FAW Accredited Clubs that deserve special recognition for the work they do. With this award, we recognise the clubs who are a focal part of their community and provide playing opportunities for everyone.
COMMUNITY COACH OF THE YEAR
This award recognises the outstanding contribution of a coach at a grassroots club or Fun Football provider. Someone who encourages people starting, staying and/or succeeding in football through high quality coaching.
BEST GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL STORY (THE PEOPLE'S AWARD)
This looks to reward a project, club or organisation who have enabled a group of players or volunteers to access football and have evidenced a significant and positive social impact through engagement in football. This could include creating opportunities for those with disabilities or mental health issues, removing barriers to BAEM participation, growing the girls game or any other football activities that have benefited society.
FUN FOOTBALL PROVIDER OF THE YEAR
This award is for a charter marked McDonald’s Fun Football provider that organises the best 'turn up and play' opportunities in Wales and has had significant impact on football participation.
Nominations close on March 15 and an expert panel will decide the regional and national winners, ahead of the national ceremony in May.
