Women & Girls' Football

Women and Girls Football continues to be the Number 1 female team sport as just shy of 3 million Women & Girls play some form of the game in England. It is our aim to engage with female players whatever their age or ability and to signpost them to opportunities that are right for them.

The Women and Girls' national game

With the launch of the 2017-2020 Women's and Girls' football strategy, the FA aim to:

  • Double Participation
  • Double Fans
  • Have consistent success on the world stage
