Clubs, schools and universities can get involved by putting on sessions which include football activities specifically aimed at increasing female participation.
The FA Girls’ Football Week aims to increase female participation in football, through providing opportunities during a national week of action. In April this year, a Girls’ Football Week was aimed at encouraging primary and secondary schools to put on sessions for girls, whereas the upcoming week focuses on higher and further education establishments.
