PL Kicks Cup enjoyed 150 girls competing to lift the trophy at the tournament at the University of Warwick last month. Women’s Super League star Taylor Hinds went along to the tournament where girls represented 20 professional football clubs from across England and Wales.
The Premier League programme aims to inspire young people through the power of football. In 2022/23, more than 21,000 girls and young women took part in their football sessions and educational workshops, impressing the importance of the sport for girls today.
Speaking about the importance of the programme, Mia Lazaro said:
“It’s really important, it brings girls together with their communities, and wanting to put the shirt on for the club that they want to play for. It’s nice that it gives girls the opportunity to play the game that they love. It’s crazy to see how the women’s game is growing, it’s unbelievable really. It’s really nice and it’s the way that the women’s game should be going.
