Wildcats Application Now Open

Have fun, make friends, play football!

The FA have developed an initiative designed to inspire girls aged between 5-11 to be involved in football. Wildcats Girls’ Football Centres provide girls with regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions in a fun and engaging environment. In 2019, over 1250 centres took part, getting over 20,000 girls’ playing football. We are now looking for even more organisations to get take part and support our mission to double girls’ participation by 2020.

The sessions take place on a weekly basis, either evenings or at weekends, subject to each local organiser. They provide a safe environment where girls who don’t currently play the game can have fun engaging with sport, make new friends, develop fundamental skills, try a variety of sessions and create foundations for a lifelong love of sport.

Each Wildcats Girls’ Football Centre is run in conjunction with local County FAs utilising qualified coaches and local facilities to offer girls a location nearby where they can get involved.
