New inquiry: Women’s football

The Culture, Media and Sport Committee is announcing today a new inquiry into women’s football in England.

 The Committee is particularly interested in receiving evidence on the following issues:

•  The development of women’s football at all levels and the resource requirements to support wider participation in amateur and elite women’s football;

•  Availability of opportunities for young players to develop skills, stamina and performance;

•  Women’s participation in all aspects of the game including coaching and management; and

•  Media coverage and sponsorship of women’s football.

Written submissions are invited from any interested organisation or individual by Thursday 8 June 2006.

Submissions should give the name and postal address of the person sending the memorandum and should state whether it has been prepared specifically for the Committee. If the memorandum is from an organisation rather than an individual, it should briefly explain the nature and membership of the organisation. The Committee may publish some of the submissions it receives.  Please ensure submissions are not more than 3,000 words long and are sent to us via email as a Word document.  We do not accept Pdf documents.

For more guidance on the preferred format, see:

Submissions should be sent to the Clerk of the Committee at the address below, preferably via email.
