Women Onside is pleased to partner with Portas, an international consultancy firm focussed on sports strategy building, to invite our members and followers to a webinar “Changing the Game: Growing Women’s Football in Asia-Pacific”.
Thursday 26 November 2020
7:00 pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time
The webinar will explore how leading International Federations, National Federations and leagues within and beyond Asia are developing strategic plans to grow the women’s game despite the Covid-19 pandemic.
Women’s football has experienced unprecedented growth in recent years, with rising participation levels, an expanding fanbase and increasing commercial value. As the host of several international events, including the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, the Asia-Pacific region has the opportunity to change its women’s football landscape.
The webinar will share Portas’ work for UEFA on how to build women’s football strategic plans, speak with key leaders of women’s football in the UK and Asia, and hear from the Australian hosts of the next FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Moderated by former AFC Vice President Moya Dodd from Women Onside, our guest speakers include:
- Kelly Simmons: Director of the Women’s Professional Game, The FA (England)
- Lili Bai: Head of Women’s Football, Asian Football Confederation
- Jane Fernandez: Head of Women’s World Cup 2023 Office, Football Federation Australia
This webinar will be of particular interest to those involved with women’s football strategy development in governance and management roles at national, state and association level and in clubs with professional and semi-professional women’s teams.
We hope you can join us for a lively and insightful discussion.
