Ratoath Harps AFC are delighted to announce that our club has been awarded the prestigious FAI Club Mark.

The FAI Club Mark is an award based on best practice in the governance, management and administration of a football club.

Community clubs are essential in the provision of football in Ireland. Football has grown into one of the most widely played and loved games in the country and this is due to the work undertaken by volunteers who play an invaluable role in recreational and competitive football at all levels.

Well organised clubs with strong structures and volunteers are best placed to promote football and develop players. More than ever it is essential that every club is well organised in all areas of club management. The FAI has a key role to play in facilitating club development by identifying and promoting best practice and providing the necessary guidance to empower clubs. Clubs are the foundation of all football activity in this country. We must ensure this foundation is strong and secure to build on the success of the game.

Having the FAI Club Mark for Ratoath Harps AFC is an official endorsement by the FAI that our club is run in a progressive and professional manner. Many years of hard work have got us to this historic moment for our club and volunteers. We look forward to kicking on to the next level in the FAI Club Mark program.
