The FSA wants to put supporter voices at the heart of the women’s game and, in April 2022, we were proud to launch our Women’s Game Strategy looking at the opportunities and challenges which come with that goal. 

The FSA’s Women’s Game Network is growing at pace, with dozens of supporter groups joining in the past couple of years, so why not see if there’s a one in your area and get involved? And if there’s not, then why not think about starting one? Get in touch and we can advise how to start the ball rolling on that.

There’s never been a better time to get involved.

The Government’s announcement that it backs a review of football governance in the women’s game gives supporters a unique opportunity. The game is at a crossroads and must try to avoid the hyper-commercialisation which afflicts the men’s side of the game.

At international level our Free Lionesses squad do their best to provide support to England’s travelling fans – and they’ve linked up with Football Supporters Europe for activity around this July’s Euros. 

Of course it’s not only about working in the present but celebrating and marking the past too. The women’s game has a fine tradition which deserves to be celebrated, and 2021 in particular was an historic year for the women’s game. 

The help and support we have traditionally been able to offer those who watch men’s teams is now available to those who follow women’s teams. Access to national networks, training opportunities, mechanisms to raise their concerns with the leagues as a national group of supporters, and general FSA communications and staff support.

The FSA’s Mission is to:

  • Develop women’s football as a whole.
  • Ensure supporters are represented in key decision making processes within the women’s game.
  • Push for positive change, change narratives and give women’s football the profile it deserves.
