Non-League Day will return for an 11th season on Saturday 26th March 2022. With England playing Switzerland at 5:30pm and no Premier League or Championship games scheduled that weekend, the date provides a platform for clubs to promote the importance of volunteer-led community football, while empowering fans to show support for their local non-league side.
Over the years, an increasing number of clubs across the National League System have recorded significantly higher crowds, in some cases doubling or even tripling their average attendance. Once again, we are partnering with Prostate Cancer UK to raise funds for, and awareness of, an illness that affects thousands of men in Britain every year.
Kick It Out, which has spent nearly 30 years campaigning for equality in football, has also confirmed it will be supporting Non-League Day again and will host a number of showpiece games around the country on 26th March.
This year’s event is also sees the launch of a partnership with the Our Game Community Scheme. Via his work at Our Game, ex semi-pro player Francis Duku has been one of the team of volunteers supporting the work of Non League Day since its second campaign. The Our Game service has grown to a level where it can now also provide a Community Scheme with unique benefits, features and support for clubs, groups and organizations. It was, therefore, a natural relationship to develop further and provide the Non League Day campaign with the level of support needed to keep growing and also add great value to participating clubs and their local communities.
Non-League Day remains a non-profit and totally volunteer-run initiative. If you have any questions relating to this year’s event, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
