Digital pilot scheme to increase football participation


The Football Foundation, the largest sports charity in the UK, is piloting a programme to enable community football facilities to digitally revolutionise the way players access their pitches.

The charity, which channels funding from the Premier League, The FA and government to transform the grassroots landscape throughout England, is working with the MyLocalPitch platform to accurately track the number of people playing, their time spent at the facility and the frequency of their visits.

As well as increasing the digital accessibility of facilities, the partnership will help the Foundation to understand where best to direct funding.

Initially, 25 Football Foundation-funded facilities have been invited to take part in the project that sees the Foundation explore methods to improve the digital infrastructure of sports facilities for the benefit of both end users and facility delivery and management.
