The Jersey Football Association will be delivering a Girls Football Festival at Springfield Stadium for school years 1 – 6 on 17 July 2021 between 10:30am – 12:15pm.
The festival is available for girls of all abilities and is free to attend. The Jersey FA hopes that providing a football festival that is based around fun and enjoyment will help grow the female game by encouraging girls to go onto other football sessions/clubs.
Jersey FA Community Coach (Girls), Lucy Even, said: “So far it is incredible to see 110 girls signed up to the event, proving that there is a big appetite for girls to play football.
“This is a great opportunity for girls who currently are involved in the game and those who aren’t to come together and enjoy football in a fun environment.
“The Jersey FA have a target of doubling Girls and Women’s participation by 2024 and although there is some fantastic progress within local clubs and Jersey FA initiatives, there is still more that can be done to ensure football is as inclusive to as many girls as possible in the island.”
