The Premier League Girls Football Programme was founded to drive up female football participation using the League’s successful satellite club model developed in the Premier League 4 Sport programme.

Delivered in partnership with The Football Association, Premier League Girls Football aims to provide opportunities for females aged 11 and over to take part in the sport in a local community setting.

A total of 88 professional clubs run the programme, providing a wide variety of sessions aimed at different audiences, with almost 23,000 women and girls taking part in 2016/17.

Since the programme began in September 2013, over 51,622 women and girls have been involved.

From September 2018, the Foundation are launching BRAND NEW sessions as part of the programme to provide a variety of different sessions for women and girls aged 11 and over. You can find out all you need to know about these sessions, simply click here.

All of these sessions are delivered by professional Stevenage FC Foundation coaches, who are minimum FA Level 2 accredited. Sessions range from 1 hour to 2 hours long and they involve all aspects of football from fun fitness-based activities to game-related play.

As the project develops we aim to create open satellite sessions for females 11+ years old at community based venues. 

Stevenage FC Foundation started coming into The Priory School in September 2016. Our group is mainly made up of year 7 and 8 girls, all with different football abilities. The Stevenage FC Foundation sessions have allowed girls to develop at all levels, from being complete novices to higher level that already play at clubs outside of school. Not only have girls improved in their football abilities but also their confidence and social skills.  – Jo Churchman, PE Cover Supervisor.
