The Premier League, The FA and Government's Football Foundation has announced the completion of the Local Football Facility Plans.
Today marks an exciting milestone for grassroots football as the Premier League, The FA and Government's Football Foundation has announced the completion of the Local Football Facility Plans.
The Plans outline what facilities every local authority area across England needs to meet the demand of football in their area.
For the first time, this country has a roadmap to invest and build what every community needs. And the benefits of the facilities set out in the Plans go far beyond the pitch. They transform communities and change lives for the better. It’ll mean more people can play our national game, physical and mental health can be improved, communities can grow stronger and young people become more empowered.
Since November last year Oxfordshire FA has been working hard with our clubs, local authorities and partners to make sure we made the most of this opportunity to support the game in Oxfordshire.
Andy Earnshaw, Business & Facility Development Manager at Oxfordshire FA, said: "This is a landmark moment for football in the county, we now have a 10 year investment plan to work to and I would like thank our clubs, local authorities and partners who played a huge part in making this happen."
