Growing your club

Growing your club


Don't forget to check out our pages on marketing and sponsorship and the support available to you. 

Football is played for fun by millions across England every week and is reliant on volunteers to deal with club administration. It may be a daunting thought to think about methods to expand and grow your club, but there is lots of help available! 





Steve Main
Andrew Bailey & Jim Stokes came down to Chapel Gate to run the Hampshire FA Match official workshop. We had a number of parents,assistants and young aspiring refs attend who really enjoyed themselves,learnt a lot and more importantly gave everyone more confidence and understanding. I would thoroughly recommend and urge clubs to book a workshop with Hampshire FA as they too will benefit as we already have.

Consultations for marketing and sponsorship

Did you know you can arrange a 1-2-1 marketing & communications consultation and even a sponsorship consultation with a Hampshire FA Marketing & Communications representative? The consultations can occur in person or over the phone to make it even more convenient for you. If your club or your league is in need of any assistance, then a consultation might be a helpful start.
