Football coaching made specially for young children

Women’s World Cup 2019

Women's World Cup 2019Commencing next month, the anticipation for women’s world cup is building! Taking place in France, 24 teams face the group stages across 9 different locations, including Parc Olympique in Lyon. It is hoped that England will follow in the successful footsteps of their male counterparts in last year’s Men’s world cup! Some suspect that England ladies may even surpass expectations and have got what it takes to go all the way, currently being ranked at number 3 by Fifa.

Following on from what has been a landmark year of women’s football with the introduction of the women’s super league (WSL), this summer is set to see some monumental performances from teams across the world. This will also be the first women’s world cup to use VAR technology, proving just how hot the competition is. Alongside England in Group D are our neighbours, Scotland, Argentina and Japan. England and Scotland kick off the group on 9th June in Nice. Coming 3rd in the previous Women’s world cup and averaging 3 goals per game, the sky is the limit for our ladies.

Amongst the build up to the competition, Fifa have launched a campaign to celebrate the amazing faces of football. A strong squad of 23 heroes have been set out to promote the tournament and celebrate the wider aspects of women’s football. Check out the campaign video here https://www.fifa.com/womensworldcup/legends/ or join the conversation with #LegendsAssemble on Twitter.

As popularity and talent in women’s football continues to rapidly grow at the rate it so well deserves, here at SoccerDays we are experiencing first hand the buzz around the game! With numbers of young girls increasing week on week, one our toddler football classes now even has more girls attending than boys. The unity that is developed through sport is something we want to promote continually in our kids football classes, using the positive role models that football gives us.

Keep up to date with all the latest from the women’s world cup with the BBC from June 7th, let the countdown begin!
