11 New Wildcats Centres for 2018
The East Riding County FA are delighted to announce that 11 new SSE Wildcats Girls' Football Centres will be coming to the County this spring.
The FA initiative that launched last year aims to support the FA Gameplan for Growth which has the target of doubling female participation by 2020.
Last year the County ran 3 Wildcats Centres, 2 of these will be continuing this year at The University of Hull and Bridlington CYP along with 11 new Centres starting in April.
The Centres aim to provide girls aged 5-11 with a regular opportunity to get involved in football in a fun engaging and safe environment. Centres this year are run through local grassroots clubs, and local organisations all linked to clubs to create player pathways for those girls that want to move onto club football.

'The Wildcats Programme is a fantastic opportunity to create more opportunities for girls in the County and get more girls involved in football. The investment from the FA through the Wildcats Centres will have a positive impact on female football in the area.
