Being coached by a professional footballer and getting regular access to your football idols up close and personal at BCWFC games…it doesn’t get much better than that as a young aspiring footballer!Kerys Harrop, Sister Club Programme Officer
The programme is in its fourth year and enables local grassroots clubs to partner with Birmingham City Women as a Sister Club and receive a variety of benefits including coaching sessions, signed merchandise, entry to the annual Sister Club tournament, and free tickets to Blues Women’s home matches.
In addition to club partnerships, schools who are partnered in the programme will also receive many great benefits such as school assemblies and relay races at Blues home games.

“The programme really is a fantastic initiative that provides great opportunities to young girls who play football.
“Being coached by a professional footballer and getting regular access to your football idols up close and personal at BCWFC games…it doesn’t get much better than that as a young aspiring footballer!
