*The FA Pitch Improvement Programme is an FA led initiative with a specific focus on improving the quality of in excess of 2000 natural turf football pitches over the lifecycle of the new FA National Game Strategy (NGS). The programme is supported by the GMA (Institute of Groundsman) via the Regional Pitch Advisors (RPAs). The key principles behind the service are to provide football clubs with advice/practical solutions on a number of areas and discounts on machinery and materials to support, improving the club’s playing surface.
