England’s Football Association (FA) partners with E.ON

February 16, 2024

England’s football-governing body, the Football Association (FA), has signed a partnership agreement with German multinational electric utility company E.ON.

The partnership is aimed at launching a new programme to promote sustainability in grassroots football. 

All grassroots clubs across the country will be invited to “apply for support to make their clubs greener and more sustainable.” E.ON will also provide sustainability advice to the applying clubs along with energy-saving kit packs and other educational resources.

Mark Bullingham, Chief Executive, Football Association, commented:

Our new partnership with E.ON will provide many of our grassroots clubs with valuable support and guidance to help them become more sustainable in the future. This includes working with clubs so that they can make a positive environmental impact in the communities they serve, as well as helping them to save money by identifying new energy-efficient ways to run their clubs. We’re delighted to be working with E.ON on this important area of our game, and we look forward to sharing further details with grassroots clubs in the coming months around our new support programme, including infrastructure upgrades and educational resources that will be on offer to them.

Chris Norbury, Chief Executive, E.ON UK, said:

Creating the more sustainable country we all want and need will take all of us working together – in our homes and businesses and across entire communities. Whether the focus is saving money, fighting the climate crisis or creating new jobs and skills, it’s important to look at the small actions that can add up to a big impact, which is why we’re so excited to be working with one of the biggest networks of community organisations anywhere in the world – the FA’s grassroots football network.

Scott Somerville, Chief Marketing Officer, E.ON UK, added:

The connecting power of sport and in particular grassroots football is evident everywhere you look. We’re proud to be creating this programme with the FA to help deliver meaningful change around our shared values and further build on the exceptional work we continue to do with the likes of Veloce in Extreme E and Nottingham Forest FC.

Carl Woodman, President Global Sales & Managing Director UK, SPORTFIVE, said:

The partnership between The FA and E.ON brings together two influential organisations with the aim of improving sustainability through the lens of football and its many communities. We are incredibly proud to have once again worked alongside The FA and to have played a part in a partnership which can influence communities for many years to come.
