Girls From Birmingham Encouraged To Get Into Football

    •  

As part of The FA’s objective to double girls’ participation in football by 2020 The FA and SSE have launched 200 SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Clubs across the country this year.

The clubs offer girls aged 5-11 regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions.

One of the 200 clubs is Warwick SSE Wildcats Girls' FC which is encouraging and inspiring local girls to take part in football and fitness sessions in a fun and engaging environment created exclusively for girls.

Warwick SSE Wildcats is running in conjunction with the local Birmingham FA which utilises Birmingham’s qualified coaches and local facilities. The SSE Wildcats clubs are ran on a weekly basis and will continue throughout the summer.

Commenting on Warwick SSE Wildcats, Rafe Turner, Birmingham FA Female Football Development Officer said:  “The girls have loved being part of SSE Wildcats since we started and it’s great to see their enthusiasm and enjoyment. 2017 is a big year for women’s and girls’ football and many of our girls are getting involved in the game at just the right time, with opportunities like SSE Wildcats to join and the Women’s European Championships to cheer England on this summer.”

At the launch of SSE Wildcats, John Stewart, SSE’s Director of Human Resources, said: “We’re delighted to support The FA in setting up these centres for 5-11 year old girls, where they can come together to discover new skills, make lifelong friends and ultimately have fun”.

“At SSE we believe everyone deserves the same opportunities, regardless of gender. We’re proud to support the SSE Women’s FA Cup; a competition which gives opportunities to clubs across the country no matter how big or small. And its why, together with the FA, we’ve created SSE Wildcats. After all, the game’s more beautiful when it’s open to all.”

 

SSE Wildcats has been established in partnership with SSE, supporters of girls’ football participation and sponsor of the SSE Women’s FA Cup, with support from UEFA, FIFA and The Youth Sport Trust.
