Fan groups get behind Women’s Football Weekend
Posted on 12th November 2021
The Women’s Football Weekend is almost here as the spotlight falls on the women’s game this Saturday and Sunday with live games on the BBC, Sky and FA player across the weekend.

While televised games bring welcome focus upon and, hopefully, new supporters to the women’s game, the FSA has a close eye on the matchgoing fan too – and supporter groups across the country have been busy preparing their own activities around the weekend.
As part of that the FSA’s Women’s Game network has been marking the 100th year anniversary of the ban on women’s football, looking at the impact it had on supporters, and celebrating the positive history of the game.
There’ll be banners (see above) at grounds across the country designed by Mali Read, which the FSA is proud to have funded.
If you are attending a match, grab a picture with your local supporters’ group and its flag and tag in @WeAreTheFSA on Twitter – we’d love to share your snaps.
FSA Women’s Game network manager, Deborah Dilworth says: “Fans are the lifeblood of football and support in the women’s game is not new.
“These flags are for all those who have supported the women’s game through thick and thin – we have no doubt it will fulfill its true potential in the next 100 years.”
