Melbourne City holds third City Challenge session

City challenge
Melbourne City held its third City Challenge event for the female football network which explored utilising media to promote women's football.

Run alongside the workshop was the All Girls Football Clinic which involved young girls aged 5-16 years old under the watchful eye of Kelsey Quinn, goalkeeper for Melbourne City FC.

The day began with the womens football network participating in an involving presentation held by the Melbourne City media team which analysed and discussed the importance of a social media presence within the football community.

Outside on the Melbourne City Community Pitches, young girls were broken into groups where they learnt new drills and perfected their skills whilst having fun and making new friends.

From observing the clinic, the City Challenge participants were engaged in developing original media content to promote the clinic and the networking event, resulting in this wrap up.

Melbourne City FC Head of Community Sue Crow said she was excited to see the program venture into all aspects of the organisation, saying City Challenge will continue to provide insights for the female football network.

"The response to our City Challenge program has been overwhelming and we’re really proud to continue delivering these types of sessions to females who are interested in all aspects of football,” Crow said.

“We held our first City Challenge during International Women’s Week and the response from the group was resoundingly positive. The group took a lot out of today’s session with our media team and we hope to have more sessions like this in the near future.”
