Sport England are aiming to make it easier for adult women to play football with a £1 million award of National Lottery funding to England’s hosting of the UEFA European Women’s Championship in 2022.

The investment will support the development of local plans within EURO 2022’s eight host city legacy groups, which include a combination of key partners from football, local authorities, Active Partnerships, education, public health and culture.

These legacy groups are working towards a common EURO 2022 Legacy Plan and will each be awarded around £100,000 to create recreational women’s football opportunities in the nine proposed host cities.
