FA Girls’ Football Week is a national campaign aimed at raising the profile of female football and supporting our aim of doubling the number of women and girls playing football by 2020.
Over 130,000 girls took part in sessions delivered in schools, universities, colleges, clubs, community groups and other organisations across the country in 2016, with over 1,000 women and girls took part in the Birmingham FA region.
During The FA Girls’ Football Week the whole country gears up to encourage football activities for girls which can include playing, training or even just learning more about the beautiful game.
Organisations can register their on-going activities as part of the week, or maybe even start something brand new to kick-start girls’ football.
The week is a great opportunity to showcase female football at every level and inspire new players and volunteers.
Many of the activities delivered during the week are based on our online guides, which provide advice on ensuring all activities are fun and safe for everyone involved, maximizing enjoyment and minimising risk.
This year FA Girls’ Football Week will run between 16th July and 6th August to coincide with England’s involvement in UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 which is taking place in The Netherlands.
