Second FA Girls Football Week on way
 Women's Football News 30 Jun 2016
 
This year's second FA Girls' Football Week will take place in October. 
 
Girls and women across the country will be encouraged to play football as part of the week which runs from 10-16 October.
 
In April more than 52,000 girls took part in the first week's activities in sessions delivered in schools, clubs, community groups and wider organisations across the country, double the original target of participants.
 
This autumn additional focus will be on encouraging higher and further education establishments to put on female-specific sessions at the start of their academic years. It is hoped that more than 22,000 will take part, a 20 per cent increase on October 2015 - and reaching 75,000 women and girls in total in 2016.
 
The weeks are being delivered in partnership with the Independent Schools FA, English Schools FA, Association of Colleges Sport, British Universities and Colleges Sport, the Premier League and the English Football League.
 
Kelly Simmons, FA director of football participation and development, said: "After the success of our first week in April, it's important that we continue to build on this in October.
 
"The FA has committed to doubling female football participation by 2020 and events such as this are key in meeting these targets.
 
"We're encouraging as many further and higher educational institutions as possible, along with schools, clubs and other organisations to put on sessions and give more women and girls the chance to play football.
 
"Hopefully these will prove popular and will continue to run throughout the academic year, giving people the opportunity to play regularly and enjoy their football, which we know is crucial to increasing participation."
 
Organisations will soon be invited to register for FA Girls' Football Week and they will then be able to access resources such as session plans and ideas and promotional tools.
 
Football is the largest female team sport in England with more than 2.89m players. There are more than 5,900 women's and girls' teams playing affiliated club football.
