Abstract

Football in the Community (FITC) is a programme of community involvement sited at all professional football clubs in England and Wales. It is overseen, in general, by the Footballers' Further Education and Vocational Training Society (FFE&VTS). The research, 'The Footballers' Further Education and Vocational Training Society Limited, Football in the Community: Resources and Opportunities', examined the current state of FITC, and was funded by the FFE&VTS. The study reveals that the rapid growth of FITC has already begun to outstrip the resources of the programme's present infrastructure. A significant strengthening of this infrastructure is urgently required to help realize the great potential that exists for future community impact through football.
