BARONESS Sue Campbell is to step down from her role as director of women’s football at the Football Association next year.
Baroness Campbell joined the governing body in 2016 and is credited with transforming the women’s game in England at the elite and grassroots levels.
“I have loved my time leading the women’s game in England and have been privileged and proud to work alongside so many talented people,” Baroness Campbell said.
“We have had a shared mission and as a team we have taken the game to a new level.
“My focus now is the future of the women’s professional game, the continued drive for equal access for girls in schools and clubs, and the development of Para Football.”
FA chief executive Mark Bullingham added: “Sue has had a stellar 50-year career at the heart of English sport.
“Her last eight years have been focused on driving the growth of the women’s game, and inspiring a new generation of players and fans. She has done an outstanding job, and we hope that she stays involved with women’s football when she steps down from her FA role next year.
“These exciting times for the women’s game are testament to Sue’s brilliant leadership, total commitment and deep passion for the sport. We’ve been lucky to have her and will pay a full tribute to Sue, her unique and enduring contribution to the FA and her huge achievements when she retires from the FA next year.”
