“Too often, youth football teams cannot find pitches to play on and when they do they are expensive and the facilities are not fit for purpose.
“All-weather pitches are like gold-dust and coaching badges can cost unaffordable amounts.
“Under these circumstances, it is no surprise we are not nurturing the talent that we all know exists within the beautiful game.
“To address this lack of funding and lack of facilities, Labour in government will ensure that 5% of domestic and international TV rights money is diverted to the grassroots game.
“This will ensure the footballing talent of young girls and boys is harnessed, and football is a game for the many, not the few.”
