The English Football Association has pledged to give every girl equal access to football in PE lessons by 2024.
It is hoping to achieve this by introducing a new initiative called “Football Schools Partnerships”.
The plan is to introduce regular girls’ football sessions into 6,000 schools across England over a three-year period.
Newsround presenter Leah Boleto has been to Cambridge to see one of the partnerships in action.
