The Midland Women's Combination League (MWCL) has been honoured as part of the FA's 2012-13 Respect and Fair Play Awards, as the organisation celebrates its 150th anniversary.
The prestigious Awards - now in their fourth year - celebrate those leagues, clubs and individuals at all levels of the game that are supporting The FA's Respect programme by driving up standards of behaviour, supporting referees and promoting fair play.
As a Silver Award winner the MWCL has been recognised as the best grassroots league in the region and for their prize will also have the choice of hosting The FA Cup or a celebrity football speaker at a league event, funding to improve coaching , or hospitality tickets to see England at Wembley.
The FA's Respect Manager Dermot Collins said: "Achieving the Silver Award has marked the MWCL out as one of the very best leagues in the country. They have done some truly great work which the FA will use to inspire others.
"Through education, promotion, campaigning and dogged perseverance they have changed the behaviour of teams and individuals and in doing so help ensure the continuing health of our national game."
The 8 Silver Award regional winners now progress to the next stage of judging which will determine the overall national (Gold) winner. This will be announced at an awards ceremony prior to The FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium on the 11 May 2013.
This week, the MWCL holds its League Cup Final at Stafford Rangers FC and Champions Stoke City will be chasing the double when they take on Leafield Athletic. The match kicks off at 1pm with gates open at 11.30am.
