Government announces additional support for women’s football clubs back to News

The Sports Minister has announced that £680,000 in grant funding will be provided to six women’s football clubs, in the latest tranche of funding from the Government’s Sport Winter Survival Package.

Birmingham City Women, Blackburn Rovers Ladies, Bristol City Women, Lewes FC Women, London Bees and London City Lionesses will receive a total of £680,000 in grant funding, bringing the total support provided to women’s football to £2.9 million.

The funding will cover essential survival costs due to the lack of spectators, and will allow these clubs to complete their seasons. It will also help to support the continued visibility of women’s football, as England prepares to host UEFA Women’s Euro 2022.
