Govt to launch in-depth review of women's football in UK

The government will launch an in-depth review of women's football in the UK this summer in a bid "to achieve greater parity with the men's game".

It follows the Fan Led Review of Football Governance published in November last year by Tracey Crouch MP which recommended that women's football should be "given its own dedicated review".

The review, which is to be independently chaired and supported by an expert advisory panel, will examine issues affecting the game at elite and grassroots level.

The findings of the review are expected to be published by the end of the year.

"Women's football is a growing force," Sports Minister Nigel Huddleston said.
