In April more than 52,000 girls, double the original target of participants, took part in the first week of activities in sessions delivered in schools, clubs, community groups and wider organisations across the country.
It is hoped that more than 22,000 will take part, a 20 per cent increase on October 2015 – therefore reaching 75,000 women and girls in total in 2016.
The weeks are being delivered in partnership with the Independent Schools FA, English Schools FA, Association of Colleges Sport, British Universities and Colleges Sport, the Premier League and the English Football League.
Kelly Simmons, FA director of football participation and development, said: “After the success of our first week in April, it’s important that we continue to build on this in October.
