Create the Space: 100 Years On In Women’s Football Calendar

2 December 2021 - 2 December 2021
7 - 8pm (Online)


Create the Space 100 years Crowdcast

This December is an historic month in the women’s game, marking 100 years since the FA banned women’s football from its clubs’ stadiums in 1921.

Both the National Football Museum and the Football Supporters Association are marking the occasion with a series of stories and events in the coming months, including this one-off panel discussion featuring a range of vital voices to discuss the impact of the ban; both at the time and its repercussions today.

Our latest Create the Space event will be hosted by Premier League presenter Anita Nneka Jones, and features a panel including Carol Thomas (former England captain), Liz Ward (Director of Programmes at Stonewall), Professor Jean Williams (Author of A History of Women's Football) and Deborah Dilworth (FSA Women's Game Lead), as well as our very own women's football curator, Belinda Scarlett.
