Female Football Week coincided with International Women's Day, and we celebrated over 3 wonderful days with Gilbert + Tobin, Sydney FC, Football NSW and UNSW.
First up Gilbert and Tobin hosted our #InspireConnectPlay forum with students from Kingswood, Jamison, Arthur Phillip, Evans and Miller High Schools. FIFA Executive Committee Member Moya Dodd lead an inspired morning, and students discussed advocacy under the #BeBoldForChange banner. In the afternoon students presented their advocacy projects to a panel, and engaged in a Q+A forum with representatives from Football United, Sydney FC, Gilbert + Tobin and Hyundai.
Second, Football NSW hosted the Sydney FC F,ootball United and Creating Chances Female Football Festival, bringing together students from across Sydney to connect and play small sided games whilst being inspired by the stories of our wonderful special guest role models, including Moya, Areti Theodorou and NSW Multicultural.
Finally we joined Sydney FC for their A-League match against Central Coast Mariners, where students from 3 schools joined the players on the field and for a half-time kick about.
We also put together a series of films of our legend staff and volunteers, which can be seen below!
