Girls football

Be part of the SSE Wildcats revolution

The FA and SSE have launched an initiative designed to inspire girls aged between 5-11 to be involved in football.

SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Centres provide girls with regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions in a fun and engaging environment.

Two hundred Centres were established in 2017 and a further eight hundred will be in place for 2018.

In Sussex there is the opportunity to set up twenty new Centres alongside the five existing Centres who were part of the pilot scheme this year.

This exciting initiative will enable up to six hundred girls throughout the county to experience being part of the SSE Wildcats programme and support the further development of teams and cluster festivals for this age group.

The sessions take place on a weekly basis either after school 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.

The network of SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Centres in Sussex will be run in conjunction with the Sussex County FA, who are looking for a range of local organisers to get involved to utilise existing and new qualified coaches and local facilities to offer girls a location nearby where they can get involved.

If you would like to become an SSE Wildcats Centre please contact Sussex County FA Football Development Officer, Clare Nichols via: The deadline for applications is Monday 8 January 2018.

SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football 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.
