The format of The FA Girls’ Festival is fun and interactive, combining football, lifestyle and music. Each festival is led by FA approved coaches and will include sessions from the FA Skills team and Football Mash Up as well, and includes skills and drills, interactive games, mini matches and the ContiWarmUp Programme - the newest endorsed coaching programme by The FA.
The programme is a joint initiative by The FA and Continental Tyres. It provides girls with an exciting, interactive football experience for both those new to the game and regular players.
In 2015, The FA Girls’ Football Festivals in association with Continental Tyres has gone from strength to strength, attracting over 11,000 girls across 26 events.
In addition, Charlotte Lade, one of the world’s leading professional football freestylers, will be demonstrating her amazing football tricks and skills.
By attending the Festival, participants will have the chance to play with some of the stars of women’s football, as players from The FA Women's Super League will be there to meet, chat and have a kick-about with the girls.
