FA GIRLS' FOOTBALL WEEK IS BACK AND IT'S BIGGER THAN EVER!
FA Girls’ Football Week is a national campaign aimed at raising the profile of female football and supporting the FA’s aim of doubling the number of women and girls playing and supporting football by 2020.
Girls’ Football Week is back for 2018 and will be bigger and better than ever before.
We are looking for your support to organise and deliver Girls’ Football Week activities and want you to register your planned events now.
The week has and continues to be a great opportunity to showcase female football at every level and inspire new players and volunteers. It will be a fun filled week of activities designed to get as many girls involved in playing football as possible. Whether girls play regularly or are lacing their boots for the first time, it is a great opportunity for them to get active, meet new friends and have fun!
Supported by Disney for the first time, The FA will provide registered organisers with a range of coaching session resources which use Disney story-telling to deliver football related activities. This allows girls’ taking part to imagine the fantasy world of their favourite Disney films whilst also learning and developing essential football skills.
When you register your activities you will also receive a range of digital marketing resources and guidelines to help you promote your events, as well as support on how to deliver activities in a fun and safe environment.
Make sure you are part of the magic this Girls’ Football Week.
