Chelsea Foundation – Boosting Women and Girls’ Football

A comprehensive programme for female football is a vital component of the Foundation’s vision. From grass-roots level to the high performance of the FA Women’s Super League, the Foundation is creating new and exciting opportunities for girls and women to get involved with the game.

It is important we players help inspire the next generation. I was a kid once and I remember dreaming of being a professional so hopefully one or two of the girls here can go and do the same with the help of our foundation coaches” Eniola Aluko
