Summary of the FA's response

The Government’s independent review into the future of women’s football, ‘Raising the Bar’, was written by Karen Carney OBE in July.

The FA welcomed the Review as it sought to support the continued growth of the women’s game.

The FA’s back-to-back women’s strategies, Gameplan for Growth and Inspiring Positive Change, have seen a doubling of participation in the grassroots game, a doubling of fans in the professional game and international success in winning the EUROs.

With Barclays Women’s Super League and Barclays Women’s Championship clubs having just agreed to create a new organisation (NewCo) to lead the women’s professional game into a new era, this is a pivotal moment in the development of women’s football, and we welcome the support Government can provide in the game’s continuing success.
