The trio, holding the UEFA Women's Champions League Trophy, were present at a House of Commons reception, to promote women's football in the UK to a wider audience. The initiative is being undertaken by Business in Sport and Leisure (BISL).
BISL chief executive Andy Sutch said: "We believe there is great scope to attract thousands more women across the UK to play football on a regular basis.
"In the UK there are 150,000 registered players compared to 1.2 million in Germany, so there is definitely potential for women's football to develop and grow in the UK.
"The sport requires our help and support and we are looking forward to launching new initiatives across the leisure sector in the coming months in order to do this."
The reception at the House of Commons attracted many politicians as well as those involved in sport and leisure across the UK. BISL also outlined some of the growth potential in the leisure sector to the invited guests.
