Public Health England supported by The FA and other governing bodies has agreed key messages and visuals regarding hygiene. The idea is to keep this a generic message for all sports and all surface types i.e. not just football and 3G pitches, especially given the recent BBC article about a rugby player who lost his leg due to a cut obtained on a grass pitch which was neglected and became so badly infected they had no alternative but to amputate.

The campaign offers a variety of information and resources that have been produced that you can share via on your websites and social media to get the message to key partners such as clubs and leagues and other key stakeholders.  The Football Foundation will be writing to all funded facilities directly.
