On 19 February 2021 we announced that the Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship would receive a combined £2.25m of support from the Sport Winter Survival Package. This was grant support for essential costs across these two leagues, and included no other government support.

On 19 March 2021 we announced a further £680,000 in grant funding from the Sport Winter Survival Package for six women’s football clubs in these two leagues. This brought the total support provided to women’s football from the Package to £2.9 million.

Details about the methodology used to assess funding applications is provided in Sport England’s Programme Guide, available on their website at https://www.sportengland.org/news/more-details-given-sport-winter-survival-package
