Newcastle to launch FA Festivals
 Women's Football News 19 Apr 2013
Following the success of The 2012 FA Girls' Football Festivals in association with Continental Tyres, plans are now in place for 2013. 
The free programme, aimed at encouraging girls to participate in football as well as raising awareness of The FA Women's Super League, will be travelling around England for the second year. The first festival kicks off in Newcastle on Wednesday 24 April at Walker Activity Dome, Wharrier Street from 3pm-6pm. Two talented FA WSL stars, Millie Bright and Nicola Hobbs from Doncaster Rovers Belles Ladies FC will be making an appearance at the event, which will host girls from over 20 local schools, organised through the support of the Northumberland FA.
In 2012, 6,975 girls experienced festivals across the country. This year, it is planned to extend the reach further with the launch of 10 stand alone 'super' festivals, along with a further 14 festivals that are run as part of an exciting match day experience at key FA Women's matches - The FA Women's Cup Final, The FA Women's Continental Cup Final, Women's England games and FA Women's Super League fixtures.
The programme is a joint initiative by The FA and Continental Tyres providing girls aged 5 - 17 with an exciting, interactive football experience for both those new to the game and regular players. Each of the 10 'super' festivals which run from April to October, aim to attract over 300 girls and will be geographically located across the four corners of England, in areas which have not previously hosted a festival. Along with 14 additional festivals at key FA Women's matches, it is hoped that thousands of girls up and down the country will have the chance to engage in these 24 free events, designed to encourage youngsters to get involved.
The format of the day is fun and active, combining football, lifestyle and music. Each festival is led by FA approved coaches and includes skills and drills, interactive games, mini matches and the ContiWarmUp Programme - the newest endorsed coaching programme by The FA. A new interactive trailer will house trophies and digital stations to entertain girls during intervals and a range of innovative equipment including inflatable pitch, target shots, speed cage and batak boards will feature at each event, as well as hair braiding and face painting to add to the festival atmosphere.
