The FA Charter Standard
The FA Charter Standard Clubs programme, supported by FA Community Partner McDonald's, was launched in February 2001 and is a core component of The FA Football Development programme.
The project is aimed at all clubs outside the Football League and Premier League, to ensure that players, children and parents can find a club in their local area that meets FA standards.
