Football Management Board

Cornwall FA is a membership organisation

The Football Management Board (FMB) represents the views of our members and acts as a conduit for information both into and out of the County FA.  

Our intention is to ensure that all facets of football have both a voice and an opportunity to influence the future of football at decision making level in the county.  

The FMB currently comprises 25 members broken down as follows: 

  • League Representatives (13) who are nominated and elected annually by member leagues;
  • Area Representatives (8) who are nominated and elected by the wider football community and serve for a maximum of three 3 year terms; 
  • A Referee Representative nominated and elected annually by Cornish referees; 
  • A Schools FA Representative nominated and elected by the Cornwall Schools FA;
  • A Youth Leadership Academy Representative nominated and elected by members of the YLA.  Membership of this group is via open, advertised recruitment.
  • An Equality Representative nominated and elected from the Inclusion Advisory Group (IAG).  Membership of this group is via open, advertised recruitment.
