Gloucestershire to host final Festival
 Women's Football News 19 Oct 2016
 
The FA is delighted to announce that the final destination for The FA Girls' Football Festivals in association with Continental Tyres will be Gloucestershire, on Friday 21st October. 
 
The FA Girls' Football Festivals are a joint initiative between the FA and Continental Tyres, providing girls aged five to 16 with an exciting, interactive football experience for those new to the game and regular players, with an overall intention of increasing participation in girl's football.
 
Guy Frobisher, Marketing Director at Continental Tyres, added: "The FA Girls Football Festivals with Continental Tyres continues to grow year on year, giving tens of thousands of young girls from around the country the chance to get involved with the sport. At Continental Tyres we are extremely proud that 2016 is our 6th year partnering with the FA and undoubtedly is set to be the biggest and best so far. Who knows, perhaps in a few years' time we may see a number of our festival attendees playing for their country!"
 
The free programme, aimed at encouraging girls to participate in football, is open to young girls from primary and secondary schools, within Gloucestershire.
 
Over 300 participants will enjoy an action-packed day, including taking on Conti interactive challenges, consisting of quick feet, batak boards and a speed cage. They will also get to take part in five-a-side games, a refereeing workshop and even have the chance to have their hair braided and faces painted to give the day a little more sparkle.
 
The young athletes will have the opportunity to meet some of the local stars of the FA Women's Super League (FAWSL). Both players will be joining in with the day's festivities, giving the girls advice and tips they have picked up along the way as well as taking part in a question and answer session.
 
It's not just the FAWSL stars who will be showing off their tricks as Charlotte Lade, world renowned football freestylist, will be on hand to offer the girls all of her knowledge and expertise.
 
The festivals aim to offer a fun and unique footballing experience to the girls while complementing the work the FA is doing with its 'We Can Play' campaign, which focuses on eradicating existing stereotypes, while maintaining and increasing participation across the girls' game.
 
Kelly Simmons, FA Director of Football Participation and Development, said: "Our festivals, run in partnership with Continental Tyres, have been a huge success since they launched. One of our big areas of focus is getting more girls to play football and these festivals encourage and provide the opportunity for our young players to do so."
