The FA has received £43,118, 824 of National Lottery and Exchequer funding from Sport England over the past five years for the grassroots programmes it delivers: £10,287,050 (13/14), £9,175,259 (14/15), £9,345,964 (15/16), £10,033,667 (16/17), £4,276,884 (17/18)

The investment the FA receives is used on projects, which benefit men’s, women’s and disability football; for example, investment in an artificial pitch or mixed coaching programme will benefit all groups within that community.

Between 2017-21, Sport England will be investing £2.6million for the development of talented women and girls.
