Football + friends = fun
As part of Girls’ Football Week (23-29 April), The FA has teamed up with Disney to inspire girls across the country to play the game and get active with the help of some iconic Disney characters.
The nationwide participation initiative will give girls, of all ability levels, the chance to play football with an added sprinkle of Disney magic and storytelling.
Sessions run by qualified coaches will take place across the country, using football resources created by The FA.
Disney-inspired drills will feature strong, determined and mould-breaking characters, who take their destiny into their own hands and follow their dreams, including Rapunzel from Disney’s Tangled, Moana from Disney’s Moana, and Judy Hopps from Disney’s Zootropolis.
To launch the week, Disney and The FA brought to life the stories of three aspiring players from Coalville Town Football Club in a short film (above), showing how they have taken inspiration on the pitch from the bold and adventurous Disney characters.
