Funding of £5.25 million from the Premier League across the next three years will see players engaged in FA Pathway programmes more than double helping to create greater access for all. Girls’ Emerging Talent Centres across the nation will increase and diversify the talent pool and gives more girls than ever the chance to take their first steps on the pathway towards playing professional football and following in the footsteps of the inspirational Lionesses.
