As well as an 11-a-side women’s association football team, AFC Unity is – through community based projects in Sheffield and South Yorkshire – using soccer to break down barriers for traditionally marginalised groups to playing and being interested in the sport.

Most of our projects focus on raising awareness of women’s football, as knowledge and promotion of role models, opportunities, and successes, alongside also challenging any ideas that football “isn’t for girls” is key for helping break down these barriers.
