Also I will discuss the pathways for elite performers, to excel at football and become professionals. Then talk about the agencies and bodies involved in funding the sport. Commercial sponsorships have become an important element in football. This is certainly True in English football where, since the early 1980s, shirt and kit sponsorships have generated important revenues for clubs at all levels.

There are many schemes that have been put up to help finance and support grassroots' development in England. One scheme, which has been set up, is by the football association (FA). The FA have invested �30m a year into the game's grass roots. The aim is too produce more home grown talent by, higher standards and better pitches, changing-rooms and facilities for clubs. �4.5 million is being invested over 3 years in Mini-Soccer, to provide children with the best introduction to the game, which will eventually produce quality home grown talent (www.thefa.org.)
