Show your support for first Women’s Football Weekend
As the FA’s further education partner, AoC Sport is pleased to support the first Women’s Football Weekend on November 16-17.
The Football Association is urging fans to attend a women’s match at any level of the pyramid and share their support for the game.
Based on the successful Non-League Day concept, the weekend is timed to coincide with a pause in the Premier League and English Football League calendars for international games, and it is hoped that this will become an annual event.
It will also build on the momentum of the opening fixtures in the Women’s Super League, which saw more than 62,000 fans watch the women’s game during another break for men’s international football.
Kelly Simmons, The FA’s Director of Women’s Professional Game said: “We are excited to announce the first ever Women’s Football Weekend, for what is sure to be another great moment in a year that has seen huge momentum behind the growth in popularity of women’s football.
“Following on from a record-breaking FIFA Women’s World Cup and opening Barclays FA Women’s Super League weekend, there has never been a better time to visit your local team, and we encourage all supporters to get involved at all levels of the pyramid on 16-17 November.”
