Every week across Northern Ireland thousands of people give up their time and effort to provide footballing opportunities for people of all ages, ability and ethnicity.
These people organise fixtures, coach, referees, run committees and more.
People and Clubs is the Irish FA Foundation's brand-new programme for people in clubs.
The development plan was designed so that its outputs accurately reflect the views and aspirations of clubs, it also takes into account the views of wider organisations that support clubs including Sport NI council sports development teams, activity providers, universities and the DFC as well as the Irish FA Foundation staff who will play a role in its implementation.
We see this as an exciting, innovative and ever evolving programme.
