Planet Mark Awards

Birmingham County FA shortlisted for 2022 Planet Mark Awards

Recognition for 'Save Today, Play Tomorrow'

Birmingham County FA is delighted to announce that its Save Today, Play Tomorrow programme has been shortlisted for the Sustainability Campaign Award at the 2022 Planet Mark Awards. 

Every autumn, Planet Mark shine a light on their member companies and individuals that have gone above and beyond to maximise their impact. The awards will take place on Thursday 19 January 2023 and they offer a fantastic opportunity for their members to celebrate and be recognised for the amazing work they are doing, from carbon reduction and supply chain engagement to social responsibility. 

Save Today, Play Tomorrow (STPT) is a series of planned initiatives, strategic partnerships and infrastructure investment that fall under four key themes - health and wellbeing, positive education, climate action and reconnecting football with nature.

As a governing body, Birmingham County FA (BCFA) recognises the need to take action now to ensure the beautiful game significantly reduces its environmental impact, whilst helping to educate those involved in football at all levels to make informed decisions that will shape how much future generations will be able to enjoy the game.

Richard Lindsay, Business Insights Manager at Birmingham County FA and Project Lead for Save Today, Play Tomorrow, said: “To be recognised and shortlisted by the panel as a finalist for this award is a fantastic achievement for us – the staff, but equally the leagues, clubs, teams and thousands of grassroots football participants within our region that collectively are on this journey of positive change with us. 

“We feel privileged to sit alongside our fellow nominees in this category and are proud of all of the wonderful projects that are being showcased. We are all too aware of the climate emergency we are facing, but sport can and does play a pivotal role in leading on change, both on and off the pitch.”
