​Fifa to honour investment in women's game despite coronavirus

Women's football will still benefit from investment worth $1bn (£804m) despite the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic, says Fifa.

A spokesperson for football's world governing body said: "This funding has already been committed by Fifa and will not be impacted by the current crisis."

The statement added: "This funding will be invested into a range of areas in the women's game including competitions, capacity building, development programmes, governance and leadership, professionalisation and technical programmes."
