Grassroots Football Award nominations NOW OPEN!

Nominations open until 19 April 2023

The Grassroots Football Awards is our opportunity to celebrate the people who make grassroots football great for everyone across Cumberland!

They’re for the people who make a positive difference, and it's our way to recognise the fantastic people who put their heart and soul into football across our county. 

Most of all, they’re a time for us to say a huge thank you to those amazing people who inspire us all with a prestigious national awards ceremony where we can all come together.

This season, our volunteers have worked hard to show the true power of football in connecting people, in building communities and enabling more players to enjoy playing our beautiful game.

Let’s show them how much we appreciate their effort, commitment and impact.
