London Football Association: Bringing the Game Closer to You.
As time has passed the popularity of the game of football has increased. This has lead to the need for county associations. The London Football Association was established on the 2nd of February 1882, by TheFA. TheFA set-up the London Football Association to take on the administrative responsibilities of metropolitan football, while TheFA concentrated on the laws and rules governing the game and developing and maintaining the international game.
Today, the primary objective of the London Football Association is to help the game grow and develop. This is done whilst, and not to the detriment of the game, by retaining and helping the workforce at the grassroots level of football. They do this by following national strategies and programs outlined by TheFA.
Every season poses new challenges and the London Football Association is always growing with the changes and the times, thus, keeping them modern and fresh.

The Movember Foundation is a global men’s health charity which raises vital funds and awareness for the often ignored issues of men’s health, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s mental health. It is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world in November when men become walking talking billboards for men’s health. Mo Bros start the month clean-shaven, and then grow and groom their moustache all month long. Funds are directed to men’s health programmes which are shaped by Movember’s vision to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health. Programme areas focus on awareness and education, living with and beyond cancer, staying mentally healthy and research. Programmes are delivered by the Movember Foundation and its men’s health partners in each country. Further information about how Movember’s funds are invested can be found at Movember.com
The Movember journey began in 2003 with a few mates in a pub in Melbourne, Australia. The goal was simple – to create a campaign promoting the growth of the moustache among like-minded people and have fun along the way. It is about real men growing real moustaches, talking about real issues to help to change the face of men’s health. Movember now spans the globe across 21 countries. Since inception, a global army of over 4 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas have grown, or supported the growth of a moustache. To date more than £345 million has been raised globally and over 800 men’s health projects are being funded.
