Volunteers are the lifeblood of football worldwide. Take a second to think about the thousands of coaches who ensure football can be played on a daily and weekly basis. Without their input football not be able to function and therefore opportunities for everyone to enjoy the social and competitive aspects of football simply wouldn't exist.
At the Irish FA we feel it is essential to reward and develop volunteers so they can enhance their own personal development whilst improving football clubs throughout Northern Ireland.
Volunteering plays a major factor in our latest strategy "Let them Play" and the targets we have set highlight the importance in Volunteering and how the Irish Football Association hope to achieve even greater development in the future.
