Grassroots football consists of all forms of non-elite football. It is for children and adults of all ages and abilities from all backgrounds.
Grassroots is not just about the players - it is also about the parents, administrators, teachers, coaches and volunteers and is the foundation on which elite football is built and can thrive. It is, in essence, the joy of football. Grassroots also goes beyond children and encompasses other areas of community and social responsibility. There is, for instance, a commitment to disability football and to the inclusion of groups which may occupy the margins of our society. Football is indeed the universal game and the grassroots of the sport are what will ensure it thrives and grows in Gibraltar for many years to come.
