Lionesses Introduce Girls’ Football Development Centre

"As pioneers of girls’ football and the first club in the country to have a female Centre of Excellence, Millwall Lionesses have always considered the grassroots development of women’s and girl’s football to be vitally important to the club. Our goal is to provide girls with the opportunity to play and enjoy their football, while learning from qualified coaches, including many of the current Millwall Lionesses’ players.

To further our development programme we are delighted to announce that for the 2014/15 season will be expanding our Lionesses’ structure by introducing a Football Development Centre for girls aged between 5-8 years, many of our current first team players began their careers in a similar way and the Lionesses’ are keen to give girls in the local community the chance to learn the sport in a safe and welcoming environment. 

For the equivalent of £5 per week, each Development Centre player receives 90 minutes of high quality coaching per week. In addition, every player will also receive a complete Millwall Lionesses training kit and kitbag. Sessions are arranged in 12 week segments to fit around the school term and holidays. For more information or to register your interest simply email enquiries@millwallcommunity.co.uk or complete the survey here. "

   Millwall Lionesses kick-off their debut campaign in the Women's Super League 2 at The Den ...
   ... and you can be there every step of the way!

The Lionesses joined the new Super League in April 2013 and will compete alongside nine top class teams in the newly expanded FA WSL 2.

It’s set to be a very exciting campaign with newly emerging teams such as Durham and London Bees taking on experienced forerunners of the women’s game like Sunderland and Doncaster Rovers Belles.

The Lionesses have been busy throughout the close season, recruiting experienced international players Kylie Davies, Sophie Perry and Naomi Cole, while working closely to bring through the talented youngsters already within the Millwall setup. This season young rising stars Lilli Maple, Shauni Griffiths, and Ciara Sherwood will be pushing for first team positions, having consistently impressed with their recent performances in the development squad.

Thanks to Millwall FC, who recently announced that all home matches will be played at The Den, the Lionesses have some of the best facilities in the women’s game, and you can snap up a season ticket to enjoy every minute of the action for just £25 Adults, and £15 for U16s.

Season tickets permit entry for the ticket holder to all Millwall Lionesses home fixtures, including nine Women's Super League 2 games and Continental Cup matches. That means that you get over 50% of matches for free if you buy a Lionesses Season Ticket!

The offer is even better for current Millwall FC season ticket holders who can get their Lionesses season ticket for just £15 for Adults, and £8 for Kids. That’s less than £1 per fixture!

The FA WSL fixtures have already been announced with the Ladies first home game against London Bees on April 23rd, while the season reaches its climax with another home clash against Sunderland at the end of October. Apart from the league we also have some exciting Continental Cup matches lined-up including a home tie against Arsenal Ladies, which is also included in the price of the season ticket.

First team manager Alberto Kurti can’t wait for kick-off and told us, “There is a massive buzz this year around the team and we can’t wait for the league to get going. We want to share this experience with all our fans and that’s why we decided to offer our season tickets for The Den at such a fantastic price – it wont be the same without the fans that have supported us and hopefully we want to gain some more.”

Tickets can be bought online here or call 0207 7400503 and we can assist with your purchase.
