The FA Invites you to Take Part in Research


The FA have teamed up with Take Part in Research to help coordinate collecting match data from grassroots youth football games between Saturday 22nd October and Sunday 27th November. To do this we need a large team of match observers to attend the games and tally information up events that occur during the matches. This data will then need to be submitted online after the game.

For each match observed, participants will receive £40 for Taking Part, and observers can attend multiple games over the 6-week period.

We're aiming to observe as many youth matches from Under 7's up to Under 16's across the country as possible so if you're engaged with your local youth team, get involved!

When completing the form please answer carefully and as honestly as possible, there are no right or wrong answers, all answers will be looked at individually when checking that you are applicable for the research.

If it looks like you'll be a fit for the research based on your application, a member of the Take Part in Research team will be in touch to provide more information and answer any questions you mate have about Taking Part. Once we've signed you up, we'll send across all the materials for you to get started.

Note that you will need access to a printer to Take Part as you'll be required to take a tally sheet and a letter of confirmation along to each match observed.
