Football

Faith Associates are working alongside the Football Association and other partners to promote and get more children and adults involved with football to areas and people who have had limited access and facilities. Following on from the success of Euro 2020 in England, we aim to promote the sport by providing new and exciting opportunities, especially to girls and women, across the UK.

We will be working with our extensive networks of faith institutions and communities to provide opportunities and programmes that makes football accessible via our work with the Football Association.

We will be aiming to launch in 2021 Wild Cat centres across 3-5 cities in the UK (cities TBC) for girls aged 5-11 to have easy and accessible access to football at all times. Weetabix WildCats is non-competitive football for girls who want to give it a go for the very first time or want to play with other girls their own age.

Alongside taking recreational football programmes to faith institutions & communities in the UK, we aim to, through the Football Association, provide opportunities for people to get involved at an entry level into football through the BT Playmaker football course (further details to come).

Alongside this, Faith Associates is pleased to have access through the Football Association and Nike, new Nike Pro Hijabs for girls to play football. We are running a campaign to distribute these, please fill in the form below and get involved!

Encouraging and taking recreational football programmes to Faith Institutions & communities across the UK fits with Faith Associates’ Sport and faith vision– developing and improving the standards of Institutions. Faith Institutions should be involved in providing and supporting sporting services such as football programmes that improves their quality and variety of service to the community.

So far, the FA has distributed "dozens" of the headscarves, which are made out of technical, stretchy fabric, Heidi Pihlaja, head of development of women and girls' football, told AFP.
