Week of women's football events at UEFA
 Women's Football News 15 Nov 2011
Women's football takes centre stage at UEFA in mid-November with the UEFA Women's Champions League quarter final and semi final draws, workshop on women's football development, as well as draws for the UEFA Women's Under-17 and Under-19 Championships. 
The Welsh Under-19 team has qualified to the second qualifying round of the 2011-12 UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship and will be taking part in the draw on Tuesday. The coach, Jarmo Matikainen, will also be present. The finals of the 2012-13 tournament will be played in Wales and the draw for the early rounds of that competition will also be made.
Representatives from ten UEFA member associations will gather on Thursday at UEFA HQ in Nyon to find ways to support women's football development in Europe. The aim is to help clubs professionalise their domestic leagues with the use of a number of support tools, such as licensing and financing. The working group will also be determining a set of key criteria member associations will need to fulfil in different areas, e.g. governance and marketing. These will then be agreed as minimum requirements for three development stages.
Theodore Theodoridis, UEFA Deputy General Secretary and Director of National Associations, said: "With club football being the basis for women's football development UEFA regards support to them as vital. This workshop is the first of its kind and will provide a roadmap for women's football development in Europe."
The UEFA Women's Champions League quarter-final and semi-final draws will be conducted on Thursday 17 November at 12:30 at the UEFA headquarters by UEFA General Secretary Gianni Infantino and Karen Espelund, UEFA Executive Committee member by invitation. At this stage of the competition, no teams are seeded.
The clubs qualified for the quarter-finals are Olympique Lyonnais (FRA), Arsenal (ENG), FFC Turbine Potsdam (GER), FFC Frankfurt (GER), FC Rossiyanka (RUS), Brondby IF (DEN), WFC Malmo (SWE), Goteborg FC (SWE).

UEFA President Michel Platini will also hand out trophies to the teams that came top in last season's Fair Play rankings at 10:15 CET on Tuesday. Ramona Petzelberger, the captain of Germany's winning WU19 team, will accept the prize for her team and the vice-captain of the French WU-17 team, Clarisse Le Bihan, will collect the Fair Play trophy on behalf of the French WU-17 side. Karen Espelund, UEFA Executive Committee member by invitation, will conduct the draws.
The women's football week is followed by a meeting of the UEFA Women's Football Committee on 21 November.
