Celebrate FA Girls’ Football Week

FA Girls’ Football Week (6-12 Nov 2017) is a nationwide initiative to engage as many girls in football as possible in a bid to double the number of females playing football by 2020.

The Palace for Life Foundation is running a number of FREE sessions and events throughout the week for all ages and abilities across south London that you can get involved with (listed below).

There is also the chance to cheer on Crystal Palace Ladies FC on Sunday 12 November when they take on Chichester City Ladies at Bromley FC in the FA Women’s Premier South league. The Palace Ladies have started the season strongly and are currently sitting third in the league.

Keep an eye out for stories, pictures and videos from some of the inspiring girls and women who are involved in local football that will be shared throughout the week by @CPFC_Foundation and @CPFC using #FAGirlsFootballWeek
