Three teams will dedicate matches to Kick It Out on The FA’s first ever Women’s Football Weekend this month.

Following a record year of growth for both attendances and participation in the women’s game at all levels, The FA is encouraging all supporters to attend a women’s football match at any level of the pyramid on the weekend of Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 November.

The initiative is set to become an annual event, coinciding with the men’s November international break to maximise its impact.

As a proud partner of The FA we are pleased to support this historical weekend for the women’s game, which will see Charlton Athletic Women, Coventry United Women and Reading Women dedicate their matches to us.

Kick It Out works at all levels of both the men’s and women’s game to eradicate discrimination. Last year the organisation supported Renee Hector, then of Tottenham Hotspur Women, after she was racially abuse while playing.

Renee now plays for Charlton Athletic, one of the three clubs dedicating a match next weekend, and continues to be involved with the organisation’s work.

Kick It Out’s dedicated matches are:

Charlton Athletic Women v Leicester Women

Coventry Women v Aston Villa Women

Reading FC Women vs Bristol City Women

Those unable to attend a game on the 16 and 17 November can still watch Barclays FA WSL via FA Player, BBC and BT Sport.
