The Australian football community will once again celebrate the outstanding contributions made by females towards the betterment of football during the upcoming rebel Female Football Week.
rebel Female Football Week runs from Friday, 2 March until Saturday, 10 March.
The objective of the rebel Female Football Week this year is to promote discussion around gender equality and to amplify new and existing female specific programs to ensure that barriers for girls and women to get involved in football are removed.
In addition, rebel Female Football Week is an opportunity to recognise the amazing achievements of women and girls in football and celebrate the fantastic progress that has been made in this area of the game.
The official events will kick-off this Friday when the rebel Female Football Week National Award Winners will be announced at a breakfast function in Melbourne. These awards are separated into two categories: Member Federation Awards and Hyundai A-League/Westfield W-League Awards.
Each Hyundai A-League & Westfield W-League Club and Member Federations will also be holding events throughout rebel Female Football Week.
All levels of the game will be involved in promoting what has become an annual nationwide initiative.

Activities and events to be held throughout rebel Female Football Week will include activations at Hyundai A-League Round 22 matches, Women in Leadership workshops, Women and Girls mentor programs, coaching and refereeing courses, ALDI Miniroos for Girls Kick-off programs, plus a host of ‘meet and greet’ signing opportunities with Westfield W-League players.
