Women in football are shining brighter than ever before. Our women and girls participation base continues to increase and provide one of the greatest growth opportunities for Football.
Women make up 22% of the Australia’s participation base with players born in over 150 different nations and set to rise with FFA’s Gender Equality Action Plan which aims to have 50% gender participation split by 2027.
FFA is working to build on the strong foundations to welcome more of tomorrow’s generation of girls and women into the football community.
