The agency already works with The FA on its FA Tesco Skills programme, a three-year initiative that was rolled out in June and which aims to offer football coaching to 1 million five- to 11-year-olds.

The agency appointment was part of a review of The FA’s PR agency contracts. The footballing body is due to appoint one other agency to work alongside M&C Saatchi.
