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 Willow Foundation is the only charity in the UK that provides psychological and emotional support for seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds through the provision of special day experiences.
Every special day aims to provide beneficiaries and their loved ones with a break from the realities of their diagnosis and treatment. At a time of uncertainty, spending quality time with family and friends can help restore a sense of normality, boost confidence and create precious memories for the future.
Thanks to the support and generosity of individuals and organisations, Willow is able to continue to provide special day experiences for more young adults like Carl. Carl is 17 and has a bone tumour. He has spent the past year having intensive treatment including chemotherapy and surgery. Carl and his Dad are big Chelsea fans and have always wanted to spend the night at the Chelsea FC Hotel, Stamford Bridge. After a tough year, Willow arranged for the pair to spend the night at their dream hotel, tickets to a Chelsea v QPR match including the full hospitality package with a superb breakfast. To top off the experience, Carl was ushered to the players tunnel where he posed for photographs with the players and had the chance to get all important autographs.
The anticipation of this 'money can't buy' experience has given Carl something positive to focus on during his gruelling treatment. And the chance to share something so special with his Dad has created memories to treasure forever.
