Barclays football

Barclays has a strong heritage in football. At the elite level, we’ve partnered with the Premier League for over 23 years and since the Women’s Super League became professional in 2019, we’ve been proud to be the first title sponsor – now in our fifth season.

Throughout the football pyramid we are committed to football, whether this be supporting the ambition to provide equal access for girls to football in schools through the Barclays Girls’ Football School Partnerships, or providing grants and support to underrepresented groups in the community through the Barclays Community Football Fund.

We’re working hard to make football more inclusive for all, now and for the next generation.

Here for every goal

At Barclays, we've made a record-breaking commitment to women and girls' football. But invested in so much more. For us, it’s never just about women’s football, it’s about creating a brighter future together.

Here for every goal report

We’ve published a report that looks at the incredible positive impact the development of women’s and girls’ football can have on society, beyond the pitch. No matter what your life goal might be, football can help you get there.
