The Lionesses will be competing in the Championships in the Netherlands. The competition started yesterday (16th July) and will run through till the 6th August. England will face Scotland, Spain and Portugal in their group matches.

So why not use this week to help get more girls involved in football?

Could your club run and activity during these exciting few weeks? Your club/organization could use this as an opportunity to get more girls playing football this summer, and use is as a tool to recruit more players at your club.
