Barclays FA Women’s Super League
Barclays doubles investment in women’s and girls’ football
15 December 2021 - Barclays is extending sponsorship of the FA Women’s Super League and will become first title sponsor of the FA Women’s Championship from 2022/23 season to help develop the women’s pyramid. It is also increasing investment in girls’ football to help deliver on The FA and Barclays’ strategic ambition to offer girls equal access to football in schools by 2024.
The story so far…
In March 2019, we announced the largest ever commercial investment in women's sport in the UK. The Barclays FA Women’s Super League is now Europe’s first fully professional women’s football league, and our investment will help the future growth of the league and its clubs.

Women’s Football Weekend – November 2019
