FA CHARTER STANDARD

FA Charter Standard Information FOBG has held FA Charter Standard Adult Club status for several years now. This is official recognition by the Football Association given to non-league clubs that have demonstrated that they are well run and sustainable. It also recognises the club's commitment to coaching, player and coach development, and the raising of standards of behaviour in the game.
The benefits of having Charter Standard status include:

  • Use of the FA Charter Standard Logo
  • Enhancement of funding applications and bids
  • Kit and equipment grants from the Football Foundation
  • Exclusive workshops
  • Starter pack, including posters, codes of conduct, certificates

This represents a major step forward in the development of Farnborough OBG FC and illustrates the ambitions of the club to develop further both on and off the field.

Many thanks to Malcolm Poynter for his hard work in achieving this recognition for the club.
