Nominations now open for the 2023 Grassroots Football Awards

Nominate your Grassroots Heroes now!

The Grassroots Football Awards are our opportunity to celebrate the people who make grassroots football great for everyone in Worcestershire.

They’re for the people who make a positive difference. They’re our way of recognising the fantastic people who put their heart and soul into football across our County and throughout England.

Most of all, it is a time for us to say a huge thank you to those amazing people who inspire us with a prestigious national awards ceremony where we can all come together.

This season, our volunteers have worked hard to show the true power of football in connecting people, in building communities and enabling more players to enjoy playing our beautiful game.

Let’s show them how much we appreciate their effort, commitment and impact.

Nominate your Grassroots Heroes here!
