The UK government has reignited the debate on transgender participation in women’s sports, urging the Football Association (FA) and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to consider banning transgender athletes from competing in women’s competitions. Culture Secretary Lucy Frazer is advocating for a stricter approach, similar to the policies already implemented in athletics, cycling, swimming, and rugby. These sports currently exclude transgender women from competing in women’s categories. Both the FA and the ECB have established policies regarding transgender athletes, but these are currently under review. The FA allows transgender women to compete in women’s football under specific criteria, including lowered testosterone levels for a set period and annual monitoring.
