The UEFA Women’s Euro’s 2022 is coming to Manchester and Trafford and provides us with the unique opportunity to inspire the next generation of female footballers. We want to grow and develop future leaders of the female game to ensure that women and girls in Greater Manchester have role models they can relate to and aspire to be.
The UEFA Women’s Euro 2022 Role Models campaign will highlight female role models within both grassroots and elite football here in Greater Manchester. One individual will be telling their story every month in the run up and during the tournament next year, highlighting a number of different roles and opportunities within the game.
Our next instalment of the series see’s us join Shannon Howarth, South Manchester Girls League Football Development Officer and Independent Chair of the Manchester FA Women & Girl's working group. Learn all about Shannon's football and volunteer journey and how she thinks being a host city at the Women’s Euro’s 2022 will impact the women and girls game in Greater Manchester.
We’d love for you to get involved using the hashtag #SeeItToBeIt to show us who your female role models are in football!
