Community Champions

Community Champions

The Community Champion Awards were created by the PFA to celebrate those players going above and beyond to support their communities. Over the past 10 years, the PFA's 11-point plan has helped clubs to instill a deeper sense of social responsibility into players' mindsets, and all clubs now nominate a Community Champion each season. Winners are presented with the award at the end of the season to formally recognise their commitment and support.

How can I get more involved with my local community?

Let your club community organisation or player liaison officer know what projects you’re interested in working on, so they can match you to initiatives where you can have the most impact. Alternatively you can get in touch with one of our team (add link) to talk about starting your own foundation.
