West Ham United Ladies back FA Girls’ Football Week

The West Ham Ladies squad with the WPL Plate

West Ham United Ladies are getting behind the Football Association’s Girls’ Football Week as the Hammers do their bit to get as many girls as possible playing the game.

The FA’s Girls’ Football Week runs from Monday 23 April to Sunday 29 April and is a national campaign designed to raise participation in female football – which offers girls a great opportunity to get active, meet new friends and have fun.

Alongside the Club’s successful senior team – who have lifted two prestigious trophies recent weeks – the Hammers run an extensive Academy for girls, giving youngsters the chance to play in the famous Claret and Blue.

If you’re a girl aged 5-11 and you want to get involved in football, make sure you head to the West Ham United Foundation in Beckton between 4.30pm-5.30pm on Wednesday for the launch of our SSE Wildcats club. Click here for more information on the SSE Wildcats scheme.

Alongside our Player Development Centres and Academy, the Club has a clear pathway for youngsters to flourish.

We will be celebrating Girls’ Football Week across the next seven days on whufc.com and our social media channels, so keep an eye out for a host of exclusive content, including a behind the scenes look at the Hammers’ WPL Plate final win over Luton, the winner of the Ladies’ Players Player of the Year and more.

The Ladies will also be hosting Lewes in their penultimate FA Women’s Premier League Southern Division fixture of the season at Rush Green on Sunday (2pm kick-off).

Admission is free for Hammers Season Ticket Holders, Claret Members and all under-16s. Otherwise, tickets are available on the gate, priced at £2 for adults.
