Football is Britain’s most popular sport and over the last decade the beautiful game has slowly become a billion-pound business.

While England’s first division, the Premier League, is thriving like never before, Grassroots football is in a crisis.

That’s why it’s finally time to #TakeBackOurGame.

The #TakeBackOurGame campaign has one goal, to make the government impose a 5% levy on the Premier League's revenue from television rights, for investment into grassroots football.

A staggering £1.4billion was spent by Premier League clubs in the 2019 summer transfer window, which meant spending on transfers smashed the £1billion threshold for the fourth year running. While England’s biggest clubs are spending inconceivable amounts, cuts by the government and local councils are suffocating grassroots football.

Outdoor and indoor facilities are in decline, as the bottom of the football pyramid is now, in some parts, in disrepair.

Take action now. It's time to save grassroots football.
