She Can Play: More opportunities for more girls to play football across the UK!

Specialist Football Provider PlayFootball and coaching brand She Can Play announce that they will be bringing more football to more girls throughout the UK.

PlayFootball continue their mission to get more people playing more football by signing a 5 year partnership with She Can Play as part of their Girls football strategy. The female first coaching brand, established by former professional Kat Clifton, share PlayFootball’s mission to drive participation in the game. She Can Play creates a positive learning environment for female development by running high quality coaching sessions run by an outstanding network of coaches, many of whom have represented teams from the Women’s Premier League and Super League. This unique partnership will see new tailored coaching sessions for girls all over the UK at PlayFootball venues.

 "She Can Play has had a meteoric rise since the success of our team reaching the final of the FA People’s Cup in 2016. Since then we have become official ambassadors of Sport England’s ‘This Girl Can’ campaign and delivered multiple sessions for young girls wanting to get into football. The partnership with PlayFootball represents the next stage of this journey, enabling us to develop our coaching offering and take it nationwide.”
Kat Clifton – Founder, She Can Play

"The momentum behind girls’ football is inspiring, and the Lionesses success in the Netherlands in 2017 has been a big part of this. We’re keen to ensure participation in this area of the sport continues to build. Bringing more high quality She Can Play coaching sessions to PlayFootball venues all over the UK will give more opportunities for girls to develop their skills, grow in confidence and join in on the fun. We’re delighted to announce our partnership with Kat, and see girls’ football continue to go from strength to strength.”
