Football Foundation responds to Government support of Independent Review: Future of Women's Domestic Football


Robert Sullivan, CEO of the Football Foundation, said:

“We were pleased to work with the Government on their response to the recommendations set out by Karen Carney’s Review. As the Secretary of State has said this morning, this is a defining moment for women’s football.

“Working with our funding partners at the Premier League, The FA and Government, we will continue to deliver outstanding facilities across the country. Facilities that meet the needs of the growing women’s and girls’ game both in terms of their quality and in the meaningful access they provide. Crucial to this will be the Football Foundation’s efforts to support our grant recipients after their initial funding to ensure they are meeting the needs of the women’s and girls’ game. 

“We are determined to deliver better pitches, healthier lives and stronger communities from the roots up.”
