Football Foundation responds to the Independent Review: Future of Domestic Women’s Football
Robert Sullivan, CEO at the Football Foundation said:
“Thank you to Karen Carney and the entire group who have worked to deliver the Independent Review: Future Of Domestic Women’s Football. I am really pleased to see that the case for further investment into high quality facilities is made within the report. An inclusive place to play has to be a fundamental building block for all women and girls sports. This is not just about future funding, however, but also a challenge to collectively change the culture at existing facilities – ensuring appropriate, fair and welcoming access for women and girls play.
“The Review highlights the need to review and refresh the Local Football Facility Plans in the light of both the exceptional growth in the women and girls game, and the recent cost challenges in the construction sector. This is a vital piece of work that the Football Foundation is already undertaking with its partners The Premier League, The FA and the Government. The results of this work will drive our future investment and hopefully allow us to meet the challenge set out in this Review.”
