Saints Foundation are delighted to have been invited to compete in a National 5-a-side football tournament as part of the Premier League Women and Girls programme.

The tournament is being held at the training base of the England National team, St George’s park, and will feature teams from across the country that currently support the Premier League funded programme.

10 girls selected from our Community Champion schools in Southampton will travel to the Midlands to not only compete against a host of other English clubs, but also celebrate a programme that has brought nearly 9000 girls over the age of 11 into the world of football since 2015.

Of the 90 clubs that deliver the Premier League Women and Girls programme, Saints Foundation are proud to have engaged with over 300 girls so far this year.

This establishes a strong female presence in community football across Southampton, which also aligns itself to the future Southampton FC see in women’s football, with its  Regional Talent Club and the inception of its under-21 women’s team for the 2017/18 season.
