The programme sees 200 ‘SSE Wildcats’ girls football clubs opening throughout England, each run in conjunction with their local County FA and key partners. The move provides girls aged 5-11 with regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions in a fun, engaging and safe environment.
The project is an integral part of The FA’s objective to double girls’ football participation by 2020 and has been established in a joint partnership between The FA and SSE, supporters of girls’ football participation and sponsor of the SSE Women’s FA Cup. SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Clubs run on a weekly basis, either at weekends, after school or during the evening. Parents and carers who attend with the girls also have the optional opportunity to take part in football-related fitness sessions at the same time as the girls.
