How a team of students have spent the Women’s World Cup gathering vital data for Wales

Seven students have spent the Women’s World Cup working with the FAW Trust to add to the knowledge base of female football in Wales.

The project has provided a perfect opportunity to gather benchmarking information on the women’s game and create a library of best practice resources as well as future opposition analysis.    

Led by our Women’s & Girls Analyst, Charlie Mitchell, the work involves students from our higher education partners University of South Wales.

As well as assisting in our data collection and analysis, the students are gaining valuable experience working in a professional environment at Dragon Park while utilising data for their own assignments and dissertations.

Charlie and the team aim to publish a written report on the tournament as a whole as well as a breakdown of information relating to each team taking part. 

It will inform the Wales coaching staff of the current trends that form the women’s game, allowing them to plan their coaching around strengths and weaknesses of opposition as well as linking the information to what attributes female football teams have at the highest levels of the game.
