Strand Celtic have applied for the FAI Club Mark award.
WHAT – The FAI Club Mark is an award based on best practice in the governance, management and administration of a football club. Clubs start their journey at Entry Level, and can progress on to become a 1 star club. Each step challenges the club to implement policies and procedures in line with best practice.
The aim of the FAI Club Mark:
- Establish minimum operating criteria for football clubs

- Support clubs on their Journey
- Reward clubs for achieving and maintaining high standards

This will ensure our club operates to the highest possible standards.
