The ESFA is delighted to see that over 53,000 girls will be taking part in some kind of footballing activity across England, thanks to the upcoming Schools’ Football Week initiative from 7 – 13th February 2022.
Over 130,000 school children will be participating in activity during Schools’ Football Week, in association with Haier. The overall focus of the week is to introduce additional football activity into schools, whether on the field or in the classroom. However, with the ESFA reaching record levels of Girls’ National Cup entries for 21/22, the upcoming Women’s EUROs and the Arnold Clark Cup, it felt like the perfect opportunity to hone in on girls’ activity for 2022.
In the spirit of continuing the celebration of girls’ football in England, the ESFA is sharing information on the upcoming Arnold Clark Cup, taking place in three venues throughout February – a great way to further any new found love for the game through Schools’ Football Week –
The Arnold Clark Cup will see four of the world’s top 10 teams clash this February, with hosts England being joined by Germany, Spain and Canada in the inaugural tournament.
Each team will play a round-robin match at Riverside Stadium (Middlesbrough), Carrow Road (Norwich) and Molineux (Wolverhampton), giving fans across England the opportunity to see many of the world’s top footballers in action.
England begin their tournament on 17 February at Riverside Stadium against reigning Olympic champions, Canada, before taking on a star-studded Spain three days later at Carrow Road. The home side’s final fixture will see them up against traditional rival and world number three Germany at Molineux on 23 February.
There are some great group booking prices available and full fixture and ticket information can be found here.
The ESFA is delighted to be promoting this new tournament and continuing the celebration of Girls’ Football past Schools’ Football Week 2022.
