Women's and Girls Football

UNLEASH YOUR INNER LIONESS

With almost three million active female players, football is the biggest Women’s team sport in England – but there is plenty of room for more people to get involved.

Women’s football across the Birmingham County FA ranges from recreational small sided games, to professional teams with international players who are at the highest level of the game.

We support a number of leagues and opportunities across the county for women and girls to play the beautiful game, which includes one of the largest Youth Female Leagues in the country.

We have three simple goals to increase the number and diversity of Women’s Coaches, Referees and Administrators in the sport at all levels.

FOR 5-11 GIRLS TO HAVE FUN. MAKE FRIENDS AND PLAY FOOTBALL

Wildcats

The FA Have Developed An Initiative Designed To Inspire Girls Aged Between 5-11 To Be Involved In Football.

 

Wildcats now has over 1,250 centres nationwide, getting over 20,000 girls’ playing football. The sessions take place on a weekly basis – either on evenings or at weekends – subject to each local organiser. They provide a safe environment where girls who don’t currently play the game can have fun engaging with sport, make new friends, develop fundamental skills, try a variety of sessions and create foundations for a lifelong love of sport.
