Trust to host girls only football tournament

Bristol City Community Trust are hosting a girls only football tournament this summer.

Held at South Bristol Sports Centre, the tournament will be played on Saturday, August 4th for 15-16 year olds olds of all ability.

The tournament is organised the by Trust's education department, which falls within the Premier League Girls programme, aiming to provide opportunities for females aged 11 and over to participate in sport within their local community.

The programme has two main objectives;

  • Increase the opportunities for women and girls to develop skills and confidence, leading to their progression within the pathway as a player, coach or official
