Could your Club become a Wildcats Girls’ Football Centre?

 Is your Club or Organisation on the lookout for New Players?

Do you want to encourage Girls to Have Fun, Make Friends, Play Football?

Then Cumberland FA are looking for you to become an FA Wildcats Centre in 2020! 


What is Wildcats? To inspire girls aged between 5-11 to be involved in football.

The FA have developed an initiative designed to inspire girls aged between 5-11 to be involved in football.

Wildcats Girls’ Football Centres provide girls with regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions in a fun and engaging environment. In 2019, over 1250 centres took part, getting over 20,000 girls’ playing football.

We are now looking for even more organisations (or local Clubs) to get involved and support our mission to double girls’ participation by 2020.

The sessions take place on a weekly basis, either evenings or at weekends, subject to each local organiser. They provide a safe environment where girls who don’t currently play the game can have fun engaging with sport, make new friends, develop fundamental skills, try a variety of sessions and create foundations for a lifelong love of sport.

Each Wildcats Girls’ Football Centre is run in conjunction with local county FAs utilising qualified coaches and local facilities to offer girls a location nearby where they can get involved.

The application window for organisations or Clubs who would like to deliver a Wildcats Girls’ Football Centre is NOW OPEN (until 31 January 2020)

If you would like to get involved and become a Wildcats Centre please contact Paul Carrigan on 01900 511800 or email Paul.Carrigan@CumberlandFA.com
