On Thursday [21 March 2013] we launched our annual Creating Chances report, which shows that during 2012 there were more than half a million participants in Premier League club community initiatives staffed by 1,600 club employees as £45m of Premier League money was invested in 843 club projects across the top six tiers of English football.
The scale and reach of what is being achieved is undeniable. No other sporting body in this country gets close, and certainly none of the other major European leagues. We have long recognised that our position at the top of the most popular sport in this country is a privilege. And we understand the responsibilities that come with that. So, while we are today celebrating our clubs' commitment to investing in and engaging with their communities during 2012 this is not something we just started last year.
Since 2001 the Premier League has redistributed - outside the Premier League - £1.35bn. That is an enormous figure that has benefited every single level of the English game.
Whether it is community and grassroots investment, Conference and Football League solidarity payments, sports participation and facilities programmes, or partnering with government departments to deliver education, health and social inclusion projects, our clubs are doing it and paying for it.
