The award recognises Member Associations for their efforts to promote grassroots football. The criteria include assessing Member Associations’ grassroots partnerships with various external organisations, as well as their technical programmes such as courses, workshops and talent identification.
Another measure of success is grassroots development in exchange programmes, such as those with schools, regional and/or local football associations, communities and clubs. All grassroots activities, for example promotional, educational and social responsibility events are also taken into account.
