FA Revenue breakdown in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2014 and 2019, by source

The Football Association (RFU) is the governing body of association football in England and Jersey, Guernsey, and the Isle of Man.

History

In the early 19th century the Headmaster of Rugby School, Dr Thomas Arnold recognized the potential of a group sport activity to occupy the time of mischievous students whilst simultaneously introducing positive ‘Christian’ values, in a concept known as ‘muscular Christianity’. The successful use of these group activities as a vehicle for achieving social control in Rugby School lead to a similar application of muscular Christianity across the increasingly expanding number of public schools. Within each public school the game was formalized according to local conditions; however upon reaching university, the lack of mutually agreed rules presented substantial challenges. On 26 October 1863, representatives from eleven London football clubs and schools met to agree on common rules. In the late 19th Ebenezer Cobb Morley wrote to Bell's Life newspaper proposing a governing body for the sport that led to the first meeting at The Freemasons' Tavern, during which representatives from eleven London football clubs and schools met to agree on common rules for ‘association football’.

Objectives

The FA a not-for-profit governing body which describes its primary objective as to grow participation, promote diversity and regulate the sport for everyone to enjoy. The FA regulates all competitive football matches within its remit at national level, and indirectly at local level through the county football associations. In addition all of England's professional football teams are members of the Football Association.
