The Future Game

The Future Game, The FA Technical Guide for Young Player Development.


Two guides, one for the grassroots and one for the elite game, were published outlining a playing and coaching philosophy for the future of the English game.

The vision: players and coaches

The Future Game vision is intended for the whole game, with the same underpinning values applicable for coaches from grassroots to elite level.

A vision for players: To produce technically excellent and innovative players with exceptional decision-making skills

A vision for coaching: To train, develop, qualify and support more innovative coaches, who are excellent teachers of the game

Innovation is a theme embedded in both vision statements, underlining the aim for a more progressive and original approach to player and coach development, one which understands and predicts the trends and demands of the ever-changing modern game.
