Leicestershire CFA


Leicestershire and Rutland County FA is proud to work with a number of partners and organisations to ensure we provide regular playing opportunities to females in the County. Girls football is a key priority for LRCFA and we strive to provide football opportunities for girls of all ages and abilities. 
There is a player pathway for young female players, from the age of five to adult years via Weetabix Wildcat’s, Leicestershire Womens and Girls Football League, plus a number of recreational opportunities also available in between to suit any need, ability and playing experience.  
Leicestershire and Rutland County FA have a dedicated officer working specifically on developing the female game, with a remit of developing a wide range of new and existing opportunities for females of all ages and abilities to participate alongside offering support to clubs, players, coaches and volunteers.

The initiative will aim to create a network of 300 school partnerships by 2024, each with a dedicated education expert with the knowledge and understanding of education and girls’ football in their local area.
