Women's football coaches from a mixture of French-speaking regions have gathered in Brittany for a FIFA Regional Women's Coaching Workshop, which started on August 4th.
The ten-day workshop will take in instructional seminars and practical sessions, including viewing and analysing games at the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in France.
As part of the workshop, the coaches involved will attend six games in the group stage at France 2018, where they will monitor developments in the women's match at that age level and share those experiences with fellow partakers, with the intent of making plans for the future of women's football in their clubs, regions and countries.
“This project is within the scope of FIFA's competitions' legacy initiatives.
“For these coaches, there is no better backdrop than the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup – the pinnacle of elite youth development – to gather, exchange and learn during this seminar.”
“We want to thank FIFA for the opportunity to gather these key actors for the women's game in our country,” said Emily Shaw, FIFA's Head of Women's Football Development.
