Women & girls football is on the rise in London!

Women & Girls Football continues to be the #1 female team sport in England, with just almost 3 million people playing the game!

There are now more opportunities than ever before for women and girls in London to get involved in the game - regardless of age, ability or ambitions. Whether you want to be part of the next generation of Lionesses and take to the world stage or just want to play casually, there's an opportunity for you.


SSE Wildcats: A programme designed to inspire girls aged between 5-11 to get into the game! The sessions take place on a weekly basis, either after school or at weekends, subject to local organisers. Click the SSE Wildcats box below to find local organisers.

London Leopards: A scheme will consist of football sessions led by female coaches, to engage girls aged 7-11 years old who might never have played the sport before. The focus of the initiative will be to introduce young girls to football in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, with emphasis placed on the social and fitness aspects of the sport.
