UEFA Women's EURO 2022 Legacy
How the tournament will make its mark!
Inspiring positive change in brighton & hove and beyond...
UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 is a huge opportunity for women and girls in Brighton & Hove - and across Sussex - to engage in a healthy lifestyle through football. More than that, we all know that physical activity has significant mental health benefits too.With these upsides in mind, here’s what we aim to achieve within two years of the end of the tournament!
• Increase the percentage of schools engaging in Girls’ Football School Partnerships across Sussex.
• Increase the number of women and girls aged 15+ playing affiliated football and retain those already engaged in the game.
• Create a sustainable and diverse workforce of female leaders, coaches, volunteers and referees from secondary schools, colleges and universities.
All leading to:
• 90% of primary and secondary school girls accessing girls’ football within - and beyond - the curriculum in Sussex through Girls’ Football School Partnerships by 2024.
• 2,000 women and girls aged 15+ playing affiliated football.
• Double the number of FA-qualified female coaches and referees to take the game forward across Sussex.
