We look forward to building successful partnerships with the English, Scottish & Welsh FA's in developing, the sport at both national and community levels."

    Jonathan Ford, CEO of The FAW said: "We are extremely excited to welcome a brand such as Lidl within our partner family. Lidl are committed to help develop the game on a local level - increasing participation of children and developing the next generation of young coaches and leaders. The Play More Football programme is the first of its kind in structure and will be a great platform for Lidl to engage with families."

    'Play More Football' Concept
    Programme aim
    'Play More Football' is designed to maximise the appeal of the sport to young people who don't already play.

        50% of Young People playing football once a week 200 000 children playing football by 2024.
        20 000 registered female players by 2024.

    Programme objectives
    We want to achieve the following
        Create regular opportunities to play football designed, developed and delivered by young people for young people;
        create a programme concept that appeals and breaks down the barriers to participation for young people who DO NOT currently play the game;
        make a significant impact on the number of female's that play football regularly;
        market, promote and communicate in methods that appeal to young people;
        develop leadership skills and experience in young people that will help them in adult life;
        create enterprise opportunities for young people to organise activity for other people in the community (e.g. work place leagues, walking football).
