The FA has launched a new Sister Club Programme ahead of the new FA Women’s Super League season and Everton is one of a limited number of clubs that will take part.
More than £100,000 has been invested by the FA into the programme, which aims to drive girl’s participation at grassroots level and attendances at FA WSL matches.
The Sister Club Programme will see girls’ clubs around the country become affiliated with their local FA WSL club. As part of the programme, Sister Clubs will gain access to hundreds of match tickets, player appearances, coaching sessions, camps and mascot places. There are two levels of affiliation – gold and silver.

Everton Ladies manager, Andy Spence, was delighted to be able to offer the scheme. “It’s brilliant,” he said. “It’s a very exciting opportunity for us to engage with our fans and young grassroots teams across the county and across the region.
“It’s giving those young girls an opportunity to come and be a part of what we do at Everton Ladies and get a sense of how we work.
“We can share our ideas with those clubs and so it will be an opportunity to enhance what those teams are doing and at the same time give them that affinity with our ladies team."
