FA launch amateur Goal of the Month Competition!

The FA and Sky Sports TV pundit Chris Kamara have teamed up to ask amateur footballers from up and down the land to show off their skills by uploading their best goals to The FA’s Official YouTube channel to mark the launch of their new Grassroots Goal of the Month competition.

The idea is simple. If you think you or your team have scored a screamer, be it everything from a 40-yard lob to a well worked tap in, then you simply upload the clip of the goal to www.­youtube.­com/­TheFA. At the end of each month Chris Kamara and his judging panel of experts will select a shortlist of three goals that will then go to the public vote.
 
The competition is open to any player and team playing in affiliated eleven-a-side adult football, and there are fantastic prizes on offer for the winning team. The winner of the first month’s competition (open until the end of November) will receive an amazing package for their team, comprising a bespoke Goal of the Month winners T-shirt, 18 pairs of the latest UMBRO Speciali football boots, a brand new team kit, 10 UMBRO Dynamis Laser Pro balls, the official matchball of The FA Cup, as well as training hurdles, cones and bibs.

Chris Kamara commented: “This is an unbelievable competition! I feel honoured to have been selected for the judging panel and I cannot wait to see all the fantastic goals come flooding in. The grassroots game is full of hidden talent and I’m really looking forward to hopefully finding the next Steven Gerrard or Wayne Rooney over the coming months.”

The FA’s Grassroots Goal of the Month competition is the latest initiative to come from The FA’s eleven-a-side recruitment campaign, which aims to inspire and support adults to keep playing eleven-a-side football. The FA has a stated objective to retain 30,800 men’s teams & 480,000 players by 2012.
