We have committed to bringing a host of Disney stories to life by introducing the inspiring UEFA Disney Playmakers Programme to schools across Wales.

With stories like Incredibles 2, Frozen 2 and Moana, this programme allows girls aged 5-8 to try football for the first time in a fun and safe environment. Allowing girls and their teachers to work together to learn new skills, support, encourage and more importantly enjoy football.

Not only does this programme provide opportunity to learn the basic football skills. Inline with the curriculum in Wales this programme supports the girls to become ambitious and capable learners through the development of specific life skills and the understanding of specific values to create creative, confident contributors with an understanding of the importance of physical literacy.
