The Fa For All

2 months ago By Paul Williams

Today 11.8 million people play football in England.

The national teams gain the lion's share of attention, but the game is for everyone.
It's "For All".

That's why we want to highlight some of the stories which show the power the game has to transform lives - and the part The FA plays in these stories.

Click on the stories below, and you'll see what we mean.

Casey Stoney
Ridiculed as a kid for playing football, Casey proved she could play & today has 129 England caps to her name and plays professionally in The FA Women's Super League.

James Blackwell
