The FA Women’s Football Awards celebrates an extraordinary year for the female game

Friday 08 Sep 2017

The FA Women’s Football Awards celebrated an exciting year for women’s football on Friday evening.

Gathering at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, the annual ceremony reflected on an exciting year for women’s football by recognising the achievements of clubs, players, staff and the excellent work done at the grassroots level of the game.

The awards also highlighted the success of The FA’s Gameplan for Growth, launched earlier in 2017, which aims to double participation and the fanbase of the women’s game by 2020 and create sustained success at elite international level.

“It has been a landmark year for women’s football in England,” said Baroness Sue Campbell, The FA’ head of women’s football.

“We’ve seen the Lionesses capture the imagination of the nation, a record crowd at the SSE Women’s FA Cup Final, the excitement of a final day decider in The FA WSL Spring Series and growing participation numbers.

“All of this has been underpinned by the announcement of our new women’s strategy Gameplan for Growth, which we believe will transform the future of the women’s game

“The FA Women’s Football awards were a particularly special evening and provided us with the opportunity to take a moment to look back and celebrate the achievements of so many who are integral to the game.”
