Win! A pair of tickets to England v France
Have your say on the state of grassroots football and win the chance to see England play France at Wembley
Want to see Roy Hodgson's charges test themselves against Didier Deschamps' flamboyant Frenchman at Wembley next month? Well you can, but we need you to do something for us, the FA and the good of football.
Throughout October, the FA is conducting the most comprehensive survey of grassroots football it has ever undertaken and if you want a chance of winning the tickets you need to do your bit. Clickhere, complete the survey and hope lady luck is on your side.
Contributions are being sought from players, coaches, referees as well as the staff and volunteers that form the 400,000-strong grassroots football workforce, and will give the fullest picture yet of the experiences and views of those involved in the national game.
FA chief executive, Martin Glenn said: "We are on the cusp of a real revolution within grassroots football and, as we move forward, it is vital we ensure that we are listening to those that it impacts upon directly.
"Our new four year strategy has been designed to be adaptable to ensure that we are able to meet the key objectives we have set. This will be achieved through listening as well as acting.
"The grassroots football audience consists of a cross section of diverse communities and this survey will help us ensure we service these groups efficiently via a range of methods, from inclusion initiatives to implementing technology.
"And, as we build on the increases in boys and girls participation and growth in disability football, feedback from such a large sample group will help us refine our goals and targets."
The recommendations have been outlined in Greg Dyke’s Chairman’s Commission, which sets out the ambition to build football hubs in 30 cities, as well as a 50 per cent increase in the total number of full-size, publicly accessible 3G artificial grass pitches across England, to over 1000.

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
