Our Female Football Development (FFD) programme, run in partnership with the Premier League and thanks to funding from the FA and Sport England, is reaching the end of it’s third successful year.
A further injection of funding from The Mayor of London’s office has allowed a number of clubs from the capital city to unite to specifically target women who struggle to exercise and keep active. The clubs offered a range of fitness and exercise activities to groups such as the over 40’s or those with a disability.
The project has seen the first ever EFL Trust Football Festival for women over 30 take place at Wembley’s Lucozade Powerleague with over 80 women taking part! The day highlighted the social aspect of women’s football and really emphasized how far women’s football has progressed in the past 3 years. Morale was high, giving the ladies the perfect opportunity to display the skills they had practiced in weekly sessions.
