Putting flowers on football kits, pink whistles and water bottles, 'social media breaks', and advertising girls' football using Disney princesses. These are just some of the suggestions football organisations have made to try to get more girls into football. But some of the recent ideas haven't gone down particularly well, with some being called out for sexism.
Pupils at one school in Durham were so angry about the Football Association's FA ideas, which included providing "colourful bibs, which should be "clean and smell nice", they wrote to complain to the organisation to complain. The organisation is in charge of football in England. In their letter to the FA the pupils said that girls "aren't brainless Barbie dolls", and "we don't need pink whistles". Now Uefa - the organisation in charge of football around Europe - has ed up with Disney to launch another campaign, called Playmakers, to try to encourage young girls to get active.
They want to double the of women and girls playing football across Europe by Children who attend the Playmakers sessions will play games and in activities based on the storyline of Disney and Pixar's Incredibles 2. The idea was born after research showed that girls further enjoy sport when it includes elements of storytelling.
With the help of footballs, bibs and cones, trained coaches will encourage the players to become Elastigirl, Violet, Mr Incredible and Dash, bringing the film's action scenes to life through movement, teamwork and their imagination. Scotland national team striker Erin Cuthbert said: "Using Disney will not only make football even more enjoyable for girls at a young age but will also hopefully increase participation levels even more.

U 6 May I already love football. A girl can choose to play foot ball or not. TurquoiseHedgehog 21 Feb Surely if a girl decides to play football, she wants to play football. It can't be right in the 21st century. These ideas are offensive and sexist. Pink is literally one colour and Disney one film producer not that I have anything against either. People should do talks at schools, maybe communal football tournaments, and if girls decide they want to play, then they definitely can- just not with the pink and princesses.
Wombey12 20 Feb Isn't this an old idea? AnnietheSalmoning 15 Feb I do not think that girls need to be encouraged to play football using pink whistles and flowers. I think that is stereotypical and sexist. AnnietheSalmoning replied: I agree plus it comes to a point when it seems like their just forcing people to do it. More replies 3 down. BPSquadForever 15 Feb I think that its wrong. Not all girls like Disney princesses or pink.
Girls should be encouraged in a different way such as people going into Schools and letting girls and boys have the chance to play football. More replies 1 down. LilacGryffindorGymnast 14 Feb But everyone should have clean bibs and coloured whistles not just girls. StarryNight 14 Feb On the article when it says girls should get bibs that are "clean and smell nice" is just being sexist. Everyone should get bibs that smell nice and are clean not just girls. AmazedWasabi 14 Feb AmazedWasabi replied: I totally agree. U 14 Feb StarryNight replied: Yes, instead of getting girls to play they should just encourage everyone to play.
Izzy 14 Feb I think it won't work because older girls like me who enjoy football probably aren't in to princesses anymore and not all girls like pink I play football all the time and me and my friends think its fine people don't need colourful bibs, pink whistles and we like our normal clubs bibs.
