Call for disabled Londoners to shape a more diverse future for football in the capital

The London Football Association (LFA) is giving disabled Londoners a unique opportunity to have their say in shaping a more diverse future for football in the capital following a transformational overhaul of its Board.  

As the largest of the County Football Associations, the LFA is inviting applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply for a range of new Non-Executive Board positions to ensure that London’s football community provides greater representation of the communities it serves.  The move, which follows The FA’s own governance initiative earlier this year, will also help the LFA develop a more inclusive and sustainable future for the sport in the city.
