Charlton Athletic Community Trust to host Premier League Kicks Tournament to celebrate International Women’s Day

Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) will be hosting a female-only Premier League Kicks tournament on Thursday, March 7th to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th and to raise awareness around opportunities and career pathways for females within the sports industry.

About 160 girls aged between 12-16 will be attending the event representing schools from the local area, taking part in six-a-side matches with the winning schools presented with medals and trophies.

Throughout the day, female role models from CACT and the football club, will lead rotating stations and workshops. These sessions aim to provide insights into the career journeys and pathways of women working in the sports industry.

About Premier League Kicks

Premier League Kicks uses the power of football and sport to inspire young people to reach their potential. Launched in 2006 as a collaboration between the Premier League and the Metropolitan Police to create safer and more inclusive communities, Premier League Kicks has had a significant impact on people and places in the last 17 years.

Today, 90 clubs across the Premier League, English Football League and National League work with 36 police forces to provide young people with access to free weekly football sessions and education workshops in safe and supportive community environments.

The programme has reached over half a million young people to date. As part of an inclusive approach, it has increased its focus on engaging girls and disabled young people. Notably, about 20% of staff working on Premier League Kicks projects are former participants, providing young people with role models from whom they can learn and aspire to emulate. Former Premier League Kicks participants include Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling, Declan Rice and Wilfried Zaha.
