The West Riding FA Awards

We'd like to invite you to The West Riding FA Awards, a celebration of grassroots football across our region.


Date: Friday 7th July

Time: 18:30

Venue: Gary Speed Suite, Elland Road

Cost: £30

The West Riding FA Awards will recognise and reward the tireless dedication of volunteers in all aspects of the game, and is an opportunity to showcase some of the fantastic work being done by West Riding's leagues, clubs, referees and volunteers

Taking place in the Gary Speed Suite at Leeds United’s Elland Road Stadium on Friday 7th July, guests will be treated to an evening of entertainment. Comedian Bill Wooland will compère the evening and present the awards, with Leeds United legends Paul Reaney and Norman Hunter providing an after-dinner speech.

We’d like to welcome referees, coaches, officials, or simply anybody who is involved in making West Riding a fantastic place for football.

Steve Dorey, Senior Football Development Officer at West Riding FA, commented: “People who dedicate themselves to football and volunteer their time and effort very rarely get plaudits, so it’s our job to make sure that we recognise this and want to reward their hard work.”

18.30: Guest Arrival

19:30: Awards Presentation

20:00: 3 Course Dinner
