2017 Girls Football Week in Manchester with BUCS.

The FA Girls' Football Week

Take part, have fun and make friends.

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.


The second FA Girls Football Week of 2017 took place between Monday 6 November to Sunday 12 November.
