Sport England has announced that tens of thousands of young people are to be helped to find the sport that inspires them thanks to a new three-year partnership between the Premier League and Sport England.
Combining the unique appeal of top football clubs with the experience and expertise of Sport England and the sports organisations it supports, this deal will engage youngsters from some of the country’s most disadvantaged communities.
The investment will drive the expansion of two community programmes – Premier League 4 Sport (PL4Sport) and a rebranded Kickz. The funding will be equally split with each partner committing £1.3 million per year to PL4Sport and £1.5 million per year to the new Kickz initiative.
