At the launch of SSE Wildcats, John Stewart, SSE’s Director of Human Resources, said: 

“We’re delighted to support The FA in setting up these centres for 5-11 year old girls, where they can come together to discover new skills, make lifelong friends and ultimately have fun”.  

“At SSE we believe everyone deserves the same opportunities, regardless of gender. We’re proud to support the SSE Women’s FA Cup; a competition which gives opportunities to clubs across the country no matter how big or small. And its why, together with the FA, we’ve created SSE Wildcats. After all, the game’s more beautiful when it’s open to all.”

SSE Wildcats has been established in partnership with SSE, supporters of girls’ football participation and sponsor of the SSE Women’s FA Cup, with support from UEFA, FIFA and The Youth Sport Trust.
