The FA Girls' Football Week

The FA Girls’ Football Week is a National Campaign to engage as many girls as possible in football. The campaign will help to achieve our aim to double the number of females playing football by 2020.

2016 saw over 130,000 girls take part in sessions delivered in schools, universities, colleges, clubs, community groups and other organisations across the country.

During The FA Girls’ Football Week the whole country will gear up to encourage football activities for girls, which can include playing, training or even simply learning more about the beautiful game.

Organisations can register their ongoing activities as part of the week, or maybe even start something brand new to kickstart girls’ football. It’s a great chance to recruit new players and volunteers.

Many of the activities delivered during the week are based on our online guides, which provide guidance on ensuring all activities are fun and safe for everyone involved, maximizing enjoyment and minimising risk.


Dates for the next FA Girls' Football Week are yet to be confirmed.

FA Girls Football Week in 2018 took place from 23rd April to 29th April. For the April Girls' Football Week the FA teamed up with Disney to support them in providing registered organisers with a range of coaching session resources which use Disney story-telling to deliver football related activities. This allowed girls' taking part to imagine fantasy worlds of their favourite Disney films whilst also learning and developing essential football skills.
