Premier League clubs join in the celebrations for International Women's Day

Premier League clubs are celebrating International Women's Day on 8 March, highlighting the women who help them and the support that they give to females.

At Tottenham Hotspur, South Korean star Son Heung-min attended an all-girls disability football session organised by Tottenham Hotspur Foundation at The Vale School, in the shadow of the club's new stadium.

The Foundation runs projects to create opportunities for females of all ages to access sport. It offers Walking Football for women over 50 and Premier League Girls for those aged 11-16, while a partnership with Barnet and Southgate College allows young women aged 16-19 to study towards football coaching qualifications alongside their academic studies.

At Liverpool, the staff and players of the men and women's teams have showed their gratitude to the women who inspired them in a video message. 

Watford showcased the sacrifices made by players who juggle the rigours of full-time employment with a demanding training schedule in order to play.

Everton highlighted the engagement of women with Everton in the Community's Girls on Side programme and the positive impact it has had.

Girls on Side is an award-winning mental health programme that has provided life-changing and life-saving support to people across Merseyside since 2007.

Newcastle are playing their part in addressing the shortage of female coaches in the north east.

The Newcastle United Foundation has successfully mentored five young coaches to inspire the next generation of women and girls into football.

In its long-term strategy launched in 2017, Brighton's Albion In The Community (AITC) made increasing participation among girls one of its main targets. 

Increased funding from Premier League has helped the charity expand its girls-only delivery throughout Sussex and over the last 12 months more than 1,000 girls have played football at one of AITC’s regular sessions.

And at Arsenal, the Premier League Kicks programme has inspired Nura to emerge from a difficult background to become a role model in her north London community.
