THE FOUNDATION’S FUNDING PARTNERS The Football Foundation is an example of how the football industry and government are collaborating to achieve something special for the good of the nation.Something that makes a lasting impact to communities and improves the lives of real people right across the country. Every brick in every pavilion and every blade of grass on every pitch that you see in this Annual Review has been made possible thanks to the generous contributions of our Funding Partners – the Premier League,The FA and the Government, through Sport England. Their vision in coming together to create the Foundation in 2000 has resulted in thousands of new sports facilities being developed across the country.This has opened up access to our national game to more people, of all ages and abilities, than ever before.
