The FA Cup
Not very glittering prizes
The FA Cup is surely one of the world’s most famous domestic cup competitions. But unfortunately it’s also one of the most unfair when it comes to prize money.
The total fund for the men’s competition is around £16m. For women, it’s about £300,000. That’s not just wrong, it’s actually crazy as women’s teams are denied access to funds that could be transformative for their growth and the growth of the game overall. And men’s non-League clubs are similarly disadvantaged.
