DISCOVER FOOTBALL: Mentoring Programme 2022 (January - July)

What's needed to start a womxn's or girls soccer team in Europe?

The Covid 19 pandemic has brought many things to a stagnancy worldwide. This has also hit club sport hard. After 1.5 years of stagnancy, some structures have to be rebuilt, especially in womxn's and youth teams. Even before the pandemic, the numbers in womxn's football (especially in the youth sector) were declining, also in Germany. This ends the trend of a few years in which football has grown through the girls sector. With our project we want to actively increase the number of womxn and girls in football clubs across Europe.
With the help of a mentoring programme and an accompanying programme with experts, 10 womxn from Europe will be supported to set up a new team, initiative, section or club for women or girls:
We are looking for 10 mentors who have experience in setting up teams, NGOs or associations. They will support 10 mentees to realise their dream of starting their own womxn'* or girls' football team.

The application deadline is over and we will come back to the participants, too!
