International Women's Day Celebration
Lincolnshire FA is proud to be supporting International Women’s Day 2022 - a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.
Here in Lincolnshire, there are many women who have made – and continue to make – a fantastic impact on grassroots football in our county.
From players to coaches, referees and volunteers, year upon year we are seeing more women and girls enter the world of football and we’re keen to see those numbers rise in the seasons that follow.
As part of our International Women’s Day celebration, we’re putting the spotlight on a number of local ladies who are involved in grassroots football in Lincolnshire, helping to tell their stories while pointing you in the right direction if you want to follow in their footsteps and get involved yourself.
These case studies can be viewed in full below – and via our social media channels.
To join the conversation online, please use the hashtags #IWD2022 and #WomenInFootball
