“The decision was taken some years ago to concentrate on girls’ football as a community activity. We have since developed that to include elite girls’ development through our Centre of Excellence. The Club has made a huge contribution to the game through its top level coaching of girls. At the moment, the Club has no plans to extend that activity to a senior women’s team but the situation is under review.”

“At Manchester United we provide opportunities for girls to play football at the highest level, with the aim of developing international players.”
– Club website, Manchester United Foundation
