Elite Women's Football Insight

1. Elite Women's Football Insight

We need your help!

If you have female students who play football for your college/organisation and at an elite level in the community please complete the following 7 questions.

AoC Sport are working with The FA to support the development of women's football and we need your insight.

With the launch of a new top flight full time women's league from September 2018, replacing the existing Women's Super League structure, there is a unique opportunity for FE to play a fundamental role in the development of future elite women's football players.

To inform these developments we want to hear from teams competing in Women's ECFA Leagues to better understand our current position. Please help us by completing the very short survey below which is fundamental to inform the future of college and women's football.

Clubs have been selected for the new Tier One and Tier Two Leagues starting in 2018-19. It is compulsory for all Tier One Clubs to operate an academy programme for which will likely focus on 16-19 player development.

AoC Sport are in consultation with The FA with an aim to develop a framework for this academy structure which aids the development of women's football and college football. Please complete this short survey to provide a snap shot into the female student players at your college. This is essential information in the development of the women's game and most importantly the players within it.
