I am delighted to be a Football Foundation Ambassador because their commitment to improving grassroots facilities, like this one in Ealing, is exceptional. Over the last 16 years, the Foundation have honed their ability to identify the areas that need investment most and then build facilities that get more people playing sport, making entire communities healthier in the process.
