UEFA Football Board meets to discuss Women’s football strategy

September 11 – The UEFA Football Board is holding its second meeting today with discussion focussed refereeing matters, VAR and handball, alongside the all-important post-2024 UEFA Women’s Football Strategy.

Approved by the UEFA Executive Committee in April, the advisory body was established to give an institutional yet independent voice on fundamental women’s football-related topics. Its remit covers the Laws of the Game, refereeing, the match calendar and player welfare, as well as the UEFA Women’s Football Strategy.

“UEFA is delighted to welcome some of the most distinguished players and coaches in football, and many of those who paved the way for the all the successes of women’s football that we are seeing today across the continent. The expertise and insights of this board will play a pivotal role in ensuring continued growth and success built on inclusivity, equality and excellence, not only in Europe but around the world,” UEFA president Aleksander Čeferin said.

“I am delighted and thankful that such a powerful and respected group of players and coaches will come together to help us assess the game of today and shape the one of tomorrow. Much more needs to be done, and their voices need to be heard and listened to,” said UEFA managing director of Women’s Football Nadine Kessler.
