MCWFC 2016 Affiliation Programme
Posted at 10:02 am on 20th July, 2016
Flixton Girls School (FGS) has joined forces with Manchester City Women’s Football Club (MCWFC) as a partner of the 2016 affiliation programme.
The aim of the programme is to link the Club with local schools and girls football clubs; developing even closer links with the local community. This in turn will encourage young girls to participate in football and wider sports; giving access to them and their families to experience women’s football at the highest level. This gives a new generation of young female athletes, from within our local area inspiration and empowerment to suceed.
As part of the affiliation the school will receive tickets for our students and their families to access a variety of home Football Association Women’s Super League (FAWSL), UEFA Women’s Champions League and domestic cup matches. In addition we will receive invitations to tournaments, player appearances at school events, and editorial opportunities within match programmes and signed MCWFC merchandise.
Our newly appointed Year 8 Young Ambassadors have already received tickets to attend a match on 31st July v Sunderland. Plus a further 20 tickets will be issued for the 7th August match v Doncaster.
We hope the students and their families enjoy these match experiences and we will be passing on our assigned tickets to a variety of groups of students over the coming twelve months. We will continue to empower and encourage our students to participate in as many sporting activities as possible; continuing to inspire them to aim high and achieve their goals.
