It all starts with a chance this summer

This summer sees the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022™ take place on home soil and, thanks to our partnership with Visa we’ve provided the opportunity to be Ball Kids for the England’s 3 opening games at the tournament.

Through Barclays support of grassroots football through programmes such as the Barclays Community Football Fund, Game On and the Barclays Girls Football School Partnerships we are aiming to make playing football more accessible for young people at a grassroots level.

Beneficiaries of the Barclays Community Football Fund were nominated by their clubs for the opportunity to become a Visa Ball Kid and we’re proud to highlight some of their stories. These stories showcase the ability of football to grow confidence, leadership and communication skills – and enable them to progress in their lives and seek their aspirations. Whether that aspiration is to become a professional player, coach or referee – or transferring those skills into the world of work – it’s clear to see that the chance to play football is having a positive impact.
