New study aims to increase female participation in football in England’s schools

Source: NCSEM 26.10.21



A new study designed for schools in England will aim to increase female participation in football. Loughborough University’s collaborative project with the FA will engage teachers to give young women and girls better access to the sport.

Over a three-year period, Loughborough academics will collect a breadth of data sourced via surveys, case studies, and observation work. The study will engage individuals from wide-ranging diverse and social economic backgrounds. 

Researchers will also engage children in the research via child-friendly methods to understand how teaching methods are influencing their football experiences.

Conducted nationwide with circa 300-500 teaching staff, the data will be presented to the FA at multiple points to shape future learnings and inform the FA’s initiatives related to this project.
