BBC Sport - Get Inspired: Girls excited by new Premier League and FA scheme
Girls flock to pioneering project
- From the section Get Inspired
Football is one of the most popular team sports among women and girls in the UK. And participation figures could rise further thanks to a new scheme that aims to introduce more young women to the sport using the lure of Premier League clubs.
It is the first time that the Football Association, the Premier League and the Football League Trust have worked together on a project and the scheme, which started in 2013, has already seen over 21,000 women and girls participate.
