Health & Safety
The FA's guidelines for the safe use of goalposts.
Football should be fun, safe and enjoyable, whether you play in a park, at school or for a local club.
Too many serious injuries and fatalities have occurred in recent years as a result of unsafe or incorrect use of goalposts.
The FA, along with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, the Health and Safety Executive and the British Standards Institution, would like to draw your attention to the following guidelines for the safe use of goalposts.fa goalpost safety guidelines
FA Concussion Guidelines
If in doubt, sit them out.
Here you will find helpful information and advice about how to recognise and manage a concussion from the time of injury through to a player's safe return to football.
The guidance, which is designed to support those managing head injuries in football at all levels, is available in two forms - a free-to-download document and as an online resource - both of which you can access here.
British Heart Foundation
Working with the Biritsh Heart Foundation to create a team of lifesavers
Since footballer Fabrice Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch in 2012, The FA have been working with the British Heart Foundation. to help save lives in England’s football clubs and their communities.
In a unique partnership, more than 900 external defibrillators (AED) were made available to clubs at Steps 1 to 7 of the National League System and clubs in the Women’s Super League to help save the lives of cardiac arrest casualties.
The initiative aimed to create thousands of lifesavers by giving players, staff and fans the equipment and information needed. With two-thirds of the cost of a brand new lifesaving defibrillator being provided to clubs by The FA and BHF, eligible clubs applied to secure the equipment and then learn more about how it can save lives.
