Football: Females

Question for Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport

UIN 185368, tabled on 21 April 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, pursuant to the Answer of 10 March 2021 to Question 163699 on Football: Females, what discussions he has had with representatives of Sport England on rearranging the FA FIVES tournament that was cancelled in 2020 as a result of the covid-19 public health restrictions.

I have had a number of conversations with Sport England, The FA, and numerous other stakeholders about the rescheduling of the UEFA EURO 2020 Championships, and associated events such as the FA FIVES, since their postponement due to the covid pandemic last year. The scheduling of the FA FIVES is a matter for The FA with the support of Sport England, however, we are confident of staging a successful men’s EURO 2020 Championships this year, and a successful women’s EURO 2022 Championships next year.
