Nominated: BBC Green Sport Awards: Teamwork
BIRMINGHAM COUNTY FA IS DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE THAT ITS WORK WITH THE SAVE TODAY, PLAY TOMORROW PROGRAMME HAS BEEN SHORTLISTED FOR THE TEAMWORK AWARD AT THE BBC GREEN SPORT AWARDS.
The teamwork award is for sporting organisations (professional, community-level or grassroots) that have actively educated or engaged participants, fans, citizens or society at large on climate action.
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: "It is truly amazing to be shortlisted as a finalist for the BBC Green Sport Awards. Our Save Today, Play Tomorrow programme has been gathering pace since it launched last summer, and this nomination recognises both the achievement of the Birmingham County FA team to bring this vitally important subject to the forefront of peoples thinking but also the inspiring collective effort of grassroots football right across our region to help create a cleaner, greener more sustainable game".
