RIGHT NOW - a great time for women's sport. With the success of the womens teams in the olympics adding to an already unprecedented year for women's sport, we look to encourage and support what was once an overlooked area of sporting success.
While the profile of women's football in particular has gained much momentum in recent years, it is still difficult for smaller clubs to come by funding and sponsorship.
We have started a local team focused on providing a fun, engaging and inclusive opportunity for London University Alumni to continue playing competitive football after their university team days are over.
We are a small team with BIG ambition.
Our aim is to create a team that is both welcoming and encouraging of womens football. We already have 50 women of various ages and skill sets eager to join. Whether they have just graduated or have found themselves wanting to return to the sport after years away - we welcome them all.
HOWEVER - this is where you can help! Setting up a team is not easy and it is most definitely not cheap. We are looking for people to help fund and sponsor our team so that we can continue to train and play, but most importantly so that we can accommodate expansion. We want our team to have the capacity to grow and welcome more women to join. We also want to be able to subsidise our annual sign-up fee to allow more people to get involved, espcially recent graduates, mothers etc who may find paying subs difficult
WHERE WILL YOUR MONEY GO :
- Buying Kit (Both for Games and training)
- Subsidising Annual Fees
- Subsidising Travel Costs to and from competitive games
- Helping to fund equipment such as bibs, cones, balls, goals
- Funding Coaching courses to help our players inspire young girls in the community
If you feel passionate about womens football and would be able to help us with our aims then please get involved. And please, spread the word, encouage women to join and don't forget to come and support us!
WE ARE LONDON ACADEMICALS FOOTBALL CLUB.
