Sport England will plough £30m into grassroots football over the next four years with a focus on targeting girls.
The funding is to be filtered into the game over the next four years and the focus of the money will be to increase and retain the number of 14-19-year-olds playing football as well developing the next generation of female players and talented disabled through a greater emphasis on coach development and competition.
FA General Secretary Alex Horne said: "We are delighted that Sport England has shown such strong support for our partnership and our joint work to deliver growth in grassroots football participation.
"Our National Game Strategy provides a clear plan for the improvement and growth of the grassroots game and this award will go a long way in complementing our own funding and that of our commercial partners in ensuring its delivery.
"Today's announcement is great news in particular for our work in encouraging participation amongst 14-19 year olds and will be a real boost to our existing interventions and investment across boys, girls and disability football."
Sport England's investment will help to upgrade sand-based artificial pitches to 3G surfaces that can be used for training, coach education and matches.
