What is Female Football Week?
Female Football Week is a nation-wide initiative aimed at promoting female participation and celebrating the contributions of women and girls across all parts of the game.
It provides an important platform for discussion on how we can continue to drive female participation at all levels of the game, something which is a strong focus for Football Queensland as we work to grow the women’s game across the state in the lead-up to and beyond the FIFA Women’s Cup 2023.
Zones and clubs across Queensland are invited to join FQ every year in celebrating Female Football Week by hosting events or initiatives throughout the week. Dates for celebrating Female Football Week in 2022 will be announced early next year.
