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 number of women and girls playing football on a regular basis
  • 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

If you are part of a club, or have five friends who would like to take part email chloe.rogers@bcfc.co.uk.

The tournament winners will receive tickets to a specified City home game and have the chance to participate in a half-time pitch parade, and they will receive the same package City Women fixture.
