By Taruka Srivastav | March 20, 2019

Barclays has agreed to sponsor Women’s Super League and the FA Girls’ Football Schools in a multi-million-pound deal.

From the start of the 2019/20 season Europe’s top professional women’s league will be known as the Barclays FA Women’s Super League.

Barclays will further become the lead partner of the FA Girls’ Football Schools Partnerships (FAGFSP), a nationwide scheme to develop girls’ access to football.

As part of the deal, Barclays will collaborate with The FA and Youth Sport Trust to create an initial programme of 100 Girls’ Football School Partnerships reaching girls through thousands of schools.

Meanwhile, Barclays continues its association with the Premier League, having also renewed its Official Banking Partner sponsorship for a further three years from 2019-20 to the end of the 2021-22 season.
