International Women's Day 2018 Cardiff City FC Foundation are delighted to support International Women’s Day with the launch of the Premier League Girls Project across Cardiff in collaboration with the Premier League Charitable Fund. The official charity of Cardiff City Football Club are delivering a one-year project, which will aim to engage with women and girls between the ages of 11-19 and increase their participation in football. Sessions will be delivered across five sites in Cardiff, including Butetown, Grangetown, Ely, St Mellons and Rumney. By offering girls only sessions - in a welcoming environment in the middle of the respective communities - the project aims to increase the number of girls regularly taking part in football and increase the opportunities for women and girls to develop their skills, confidence and progress as a player, coach or official. The project launched officially on 17th February at Cardiff City Stadium during Cardiff City FC's fixture against Middlesbrough. The event saw partners and participants from the project attend the game and take part in the half-time entertainment and activities on the pitch. We are proud to add this project to our ongoing projects which include girls only soccer school sessions as well as the girl-only development centre that gives each individual a tailored coaching plan for their six-week block to help them progress as a player, coach or official. We also run Premier League Kicks girl-only session that are avaliable during termtime, taking place in Willows High School in Splott on a Monday afternoon and Cathays High School on a Tuesday afternoon.
