the voice for young people in football
Birmingham County FA Youth Council is for 16-25 year olds and is about providing a voice for young people across the County. Experiences and opportunities for members are also provided to help you develop in the future.
Meetings take place once a month, with the main goal being to support the County with their targets in football. Previous examples of this include helping out at our County Cup Finals, taking part in Charter Standard Workshops alongside participating in Youth-Adult Partnerships with Clubs and Leagues.
New applicants can apply between July and August each year.
