FA announce 'For All' brand purpose

The Football Association have today announced a new brand purpose, ‘For All’.  

‘For All’ champions the organisation’­s provision and support of football for all people at all levels. The brand purpose will sit at the heart of The FA, internally and externally from a grassroots level right through to England’s 24 national teams. 

Today’s announcement coincided with the launch of The FA’s women’s football strategy at Wembley Stadium connected by EE. The strategy details The FA’s approach to its three core goals for the women’s and girl’s game by 2020: to double parti­cipa­tion, double the fanbase and achieve consistent success on the world stage. 

‘For All’ was launched with two short films and a series of case studies to create greater awareness of The FA’s role on behalf of our national sport. The content also demonstrates the level of support and influence The FA has on individuals’ lives and highlights in particular the work with women and people with disabilities. 

The first film stars England Lioness defender, Casey Stoney.  The film – also launched in conjunction with the women’s football strategy – documents Stoney’s journey from being the only girl in her youth team to achieving 129 caps for her country and also her experience as a coach.  She also expresses her gratitude for The FA’s support during several challenges in her adult life. 

The second film centres on the story of James Blackwell and the support he received from The FA to fulfil the dream of playing for his country. James is a star of the England Cerebral Palsy team, one of seven national disability teams run by The FA.  The film was showcased on BT Sport the weekend of the Emirates FA Cup Quarter Finals.
