As the regional governing body for football across the West Midlands responsible for 1200 clubs, 4750 teams, 48,000 affiliated games each season & 100,000 participants, we feel it’s important to represent our game and participants on positive climate action, reducing the burden football currently has on our planet. We are really pleased to be working with LIFE TACKLE and FGA in November this year to reduce our carbon footprint further. We have recently adopted one of the best practice sustainable travel solutions and are starting to work with FGA to look closer at other effective reduction methods”
