Question over Sport England


Sport England has reduced Football Association funding by £1.6 million. The reason it gives is “because the number of people playing football regularly – once a week, every week – has dropped sharply.”

See http://www.sportengland.org/media-centre/news/2014/march/26/sport-england-continues-tough-approach-to-sport-delivery/

It is truly ironic that, at the same time, Sport England has no objection to giving away community land and football pitches to a professional football club. Thereby r  helping the decline of community sport.

One wonders what Sport England’s real objectives are.
