Women’s FA Cup prize money: FSA pens open letter to FA

The FA Board recently announced “a significant increase in prize money” for the Women’s FA Cup, set to come into effect from the 2022-23 season, with further details to be released.

The growth of the women’s game is something which the FSA celebrates and our Women’s Game Network is keen to engage positively with the FA to ensure supporter voices are heard as the sport develops.

The network, made up of FSA-affiliated and associated supporters’ groups, was formally constituted within the FSA in 2020 and has three representatives on our National Council. 

Supporters on the network have this week written to the FA outlining a few key principles relating to the Women’s FA Cup and associated governance issues. They are:

  1. No-one should “pay to play” in the Women’s FA Cup.
  2. Increased funding should be steered towards clubs in the early rounds of the competition.
  3. Everyone in football should actively support the establishment of a separate review into governance in the women’s game.

The FSA and our member groups look forward to discussing those issues in further detail and working together with the FA to support the women’s game.
