Powerleague's exciting initiatives for women

Monday 27 Jun 2016

Powerleague, the small-sided football provider, have introduced three exciting initiatives to help women to get involved in football activities.

Whether you want to stay sharp and play competitively in a new Women’s European League, have fun with a free hour of football or you just want to keep fit, build new skills and get introduced to football, Powerleague is offering the session for you.

“We are delighted that Powerleague are offering new programmes to try and increase the opportunities for females to play football," said Rachel Pavlou, FA Women's Football Participation Manager. 

Action from the Senior Women

Women can get involved in football with Powerleague, who have three new initiatives available

"The FA wants to fundamentally increase the number of women playing the game and these initiatives from Powerleague will be a huge help as we aim to achieve this.”

The Women’s European League is the first-ever small-sided pan-European competition – with the champions going to the Euros in the Netherlands next summer.

Matches are slightly shorter in length so that you can enjoy two matches per night at your local Powerleague centre.

And the free hour of football is available every day of the week at off-peak times and is open to all ability levels, ages and experiences.

If you’re into your fitness, but not quite comfortable with a ball at your feet just yet, why not try Soccercise?

These hour-long fitness classes take place at the same time every week and the aim is to develop your ball skills and get introduced to the game, and classes can be tailored to all levels of fitness.
