Community football is a wonderful way for girls and boys to have fun and participate in a game that promotes teamwork and participation for everyone. This summer’s UEFA Women’s EURO 2017 is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the game.
Our #15yearsofgrassroots Twitter chat on 10th July is all about your children – especially girls – participating in football. We want to hear your tips, your stories and your family enthusiasm for the sport. We’ll be joined by footballer Casey Stoney, sharing her on-field adventures and answering questions about the sport.
The chat is sponsored by McDonald’s UK, the longest standing supporter of grassroots football in the UK and which this year celebrates the 15th anniversary of its community programme. McDonald’s support of this summer’s UEFA Women’s EURO 2017™ reflects its longstanding commitment to inclusivity.
