Youth Football in Suffolk

There has never been a more exciting time to get into children's football.

Suffolk FA support an incredible grassroots community of leagues, clubs, coaches, volunteers and parents to provide a safe and fun environment for young people to football.

We work hard with these partners to provide children, teenagers and young adults of all abilities with a wide range of opportunities to get involved in the game.

Youth football across Suffolk has seen many positive developments in recent years.

With The FA Youth Review being implemented across the country, this has resulted in a culture change for managers, referees, parents and, most importantly, players.

It is the aim of Suffolk FA to promote positive match-day environments and provide teams and players with the best possible football experience.

Let's make football safe, not sorry
Reporting Concerns


If you feel that an adult connected to your league or club (e.g. a referee, coach or a volunteer) is mistreating someone under the age of 18, there are various confidential ways you can report this.

By ‘mistreating’, we mean behaving towards under-18s in a physical or verbal way you believe is threatening or makes the young person feel scared or bad.

Find out more and watch a short film The FA has produced explaining how to report your concerns. Of course, everything is completely confidential.


Girls across the county will be provided with increased opportunities to play football after a new nationwide participation programme was announced.
