The Women's World Cup is about to kick-off and we want girls across Wales to join in the fun.
The Women’s World Cup is taking place in France this summer, between Friday 7th June and Sunday 7th July 2019. This means that the women’s game will receive an unprecedented amount of global promotion and profile during this time providing us with an ideal platform to encourage girls in Wales to try football.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR WALES?
There will be 9 regional festivals taking place across Wales between June – July this summer. All events are open to new and existing girls, boys and their families who want to enjoy a fun day of football related activities! The events will welcome clubs and partners to deliver fun activities throughout the day for participants to enjoy with their friends.
WHAT’S THE CLUBS’ ROLE?
We are inviting clubs and partners to come along as their chosen World Cup country for the day. Each club will be responsible for one station each on the day which can be any activity that will engage girls in football! This could be a challenge, a game or a drill – providing it is fun, encourages team work and emphasises the inclusivity of football. We are encouraging all existing club players to come along with a friend who doesn’t play football – it’s their chance to have a go and experience all that football has to offer!
WHAT’S THE AIM?
1) To provide new girls of all ages and their families the opportunity to try football for the first time
2) To encourage existing players to enjoy their favourite sport with their friends and siblings
3) To raise the profile of the women’s game as a whole
HOW WILL IT WORK?
Each participant will receive a World Cup Pass on arrival. Once they have visited each ‘country’ they will receive a stamp. That stamp will allow them to choose a prize at the end of their journey! Clubs can provide each participant with club flyers, information and training details to encourage the girls to join their club as they visit their station.
HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?
Just come along to your local festival with your friends and family – all activities are free of charge!
