Thursday 15 Jul 2021

Our Chief Executive, Mark Bullingham, has welcomed today’s announcement from Government that a further £50million will be invested into grassroots football facilities.

Mark Bullingham, FA Chief Executive, said: “Grassroots football facilities play a vital role in the heart of our communities and investment in them has never been more important. This £50m from the Government, as part of their £550m Manifesto commitment, will help to change and improve lives. More quality facilities around the country will help us find and inspire the next generation of England stars. This funding will also play an important part in helping to get people active again and improving the mental and physical health of the nation as lockdown restrictions are lifted.”
