Premier League Girls
A platform for female sports participation
Foundation + Female Footballers
Delivered in partnership with The Football Association, Premier League Girls Football aims to provide opportunities for females aged 11 and over to take part in the sport in a local community setting.
Tottenham Hotspur is one of almost 90 professional clubs who provide a wide variety of sessions aimed at different audiences, through the programme. The PL Girls Football programme was set up five years ago and has engaged more than 600 girls. The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation have taken part in the programme over the last three years.
Clubs deliver innovative sessions such as glow in the dark football to emphasise the fun, social element of the sport and soccercise that uses football as a way to keep fit. For participants who want to progress in the game, clubs create pathways with local community clubs to provide long-term participation opportunities, whilst many clubs also deliver elements of the female talent pathway.
The programme has two main objectives:
To increase the number of women and girls playing football on a regular basis
To increase the opportunities for women and girls to develop skills and confidence and progress within the pathway as a player, coach or official
The programme achieves this by providing a fun and informal environment, allowing participants to progress at their own pace and make friends at the same time.
The programme culminates in an annual event held prior to the Women’s FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium providing young people the opportunity to represent their club and meet new people.
