The campaign will help to achieve The FA’s aim of doubling the number of females 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.
During FA Girls’ Football Week the whole country will gear up to encourage football activities for girls, which can include playing, training or just simply 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. It’s a great chance to recruit new players and volunteers.
Many of the activities delivered during the week are based on The FA online guides, which provide guidance on ensuring all activities are fun and safe for everyone involved, maximizing enjoyment and minimising risk.
To get involved please register your FA Girls’ Football Week activity. Once registered you will have access to resources to support you!
