What is rebel Female Football Week?

rebel Female Football Week (FFW) was originally established by Football Member Federations in 2014 with the aim to shine the spotlight on girl’s and women in football and grow female participation at the grassroots level

rebel FFW has evolved into a nationwide initiative whereby all stakeholders, both grassroots and professional, work towards making the game a more inclusive sport for females

rebel FFW provides football stakeholders with a platform to spark discussions around gender equality and to amplify new and existing female specific programs and events to ensure we remove the barriers to entry for women and girls

Females make up 50% of the population, it is footballs long term vision to have this gender split reflected in our sport at all areas of the game. rebel FFW presents an opportunity for football to review current practices and ensure they are designed to increase and retain female players, administrators, coaches, referees and fans

Lastly, rebel FFW provides football with an opportunity to recognise the amazing achievements of women and girls in football. Additionally, women’s football has grown from strength to strength over the years, it’s the perfect time to celebrate the fantastic progress that’s been made in this space
