UEFA B BAME Bursary Scheme - Register your interest

Print friendly page


As highlighted in The FA Chairman’s Commission Report the lack of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) coaches is woefully unrepresentative of the large numbers of BAME players playing football in England at both senior and grassroots levels. To help address this, and in partnership with Sport England, The FA are delighted to offer one-hundred £600 bursaries for BAME coaches for the 2015/16 season to contribute towards UEFA B course fees.

If you are interested in taking up this opportunity please apply below. If unsuccessful for this season please be aware this scheme will run again for the 2016/17 season, with applications opening in February 2016

Course pre-requisites

Please be aware that if you already have a FAN, and create another FAN, this could cause delays in being confirmed on the course and any qualifications being awarded.
