London - The English FA marked the first anniversary of Fabrice Muamba's cardiac arrest during an FA Cup tie by announcing it was providing more than 900 life-saving defibrillators to senior men's and women's soccer clubs in England.
In a joint statement with the British Heart Foundation (BHF) on Monday, the FA said the "initiative will create thousands of life-savers by giving players, staff and fans access to the equipment and information needed to save a life."
The BHF will match a donation of £400,000 from the FA towards the cost of the defibrillators, with another 400 000 pounds coming from clubs.
