Charter Standard Annual Health Check 2013-14 & 2014-15The deadline of March 31st 2014 for clubs to complete this seasons Annual Health Check process and receive their contribution of footballs from Nike is getting closer! Below is more information on why I urge you to get it complete or have an action plan in place with myself to class as ‘In-progress’, please contact me to put an action plan in place.
The FA are currently renewing their sponsor programmes for 2014/18 and although we cannot reveal the details of the programmes I must urge all FA Charter Standard clubs to have either completed their Annual Health Check or are classed as In-progress by the 31st March 2014. We are hoping to provide a significant benefit to FA Charter Standard clubs for season 2014/15 and I have to provide a list of Charter Standard Clubs on the 1st April 2014 so we can order and fulfil clubs for 2014/15. If you are Suspended after the 31st March 2014 deadline then you will not be in line to receive what is hoped a significant benefit next season.
