Who Will You Nominate For An Award?

Nominations are now open for the England Football Grassroots Awards 2024!

Across Leicestershire and Rutland, we want to find these amazing people, share their story nationally and celebrate them. And just say a huge thank you. You can nominate as many times as you like, in as many categories as you like. 

The Grassroots Football Awards are here for you to say thank you to all the people and organisations who give their time to make football happen… our awesome volunteers who give so much week-in, week out, rain or shine. 

They are for you, the parents, coaches, clubs, leagues, fellow volunteers, match officials and more to pass on your appreciation.


This year, it’s easier than ever. You can now tell their story in a way you want simply by letting us know:

  • What they do, and how it impresses you
  • How they make a difference to others’ lives
  • Where they’ve had an impact in their community

The more detail you give, the better. 

So let’s find the people who make football great in Leicestershire and Rutland, and they can win a National Award and have the chance to be celebrated at Wembley. 

Nominations are open until the 3rd April 2024. There are twelve different categories for you to nominate into.

  • Club of the Year
  • League of the Year
  • Match Official of the Year
  • Young Volunteer of the Year
  • New Volunteer of the Year
  • Grounds Team of the Year
