The Government is committed to supporting people to take part in sport and physical activity regardless of their background or ability. Over the 2017-2021 period, Sport England is investing over £1 billion to support people to get physically active in whatever way best suits them. Since 2004 Sport England has invested over £10 million into projects where American football has been a beneficiary, on its own or as part of a multi-sport project.
