Within the football community there needs to be a stronger focus on female participation within the sport.
With the recent growth in female football, it is clear that there is a need to provide more female friendly sporting facilities across the country.
Access to facilities that support and enhance participation is critical for Women’s sports at all levels, from grassroots through to elite.
Having female friendly sporting clubs sends an important message to all females, that they are welcome within the football family, and that their club’s culture is one that will facilitate and support their participation.
The utilisation of these design considerations in planning female friendly facilities will demonstrate a commitment to female participation in football.
