Families celebrate women’s professional football #ad

The women’s game in professional football has come on leaps and bounds (or should that be kicks and headers?) over the past several years, with growing audiences and enthusiasm from fans young and old alike. 

When the Football Association invited BritMums to the SSE Women’s FA Cup Final at Wembley, we would have clapped our hands, but hands aren’t allowed in football! We invited several other blogging mums and their family football fans, in what turned out to be an exciting experience and a thrilling game to watch. (BritMums is working with the Football Association in a paid relationship.)

Have a look below at some of the experiences captured at the game.

    I love this initiative to get girls into the sport – the footballing women are doing great things at the moment – they are an inspiration!
