The FA is continuing its review of The Gameplan for Growth strategy
This week, The FA is continuing its review of The Gameplan for Growth strategy by analysing the growth and development of refereeing in the women’s and girls’ game.
Launched in March 2017, the strategy pledged to tackle ambitious targets to double participation [by doubling the number of affiliated teams], double the game’s fanbase and create a high-performance system and world-class talent pipeline for England teams to achieve consistent success on the world stage.
After four seasons the strategy is now concluding, and in the coming months The FA will outline its continued support for women’s and girls’ football with the launch of the 2020-2024 strategy.
This week reviews The Gameplan for Growth’s positive impact on the growth and development of refereeing in the women’s and girls’ game.
Please find below the results, a first-person narrative from Jo Stimpson [The FA’s Women’s Professional Game Refereeing Manager] and the story of three case studies who have flourished during the strategy.
