UEFA PARTNERS WITH MILLIE BOBBY BROWN TO SUPPORT GIRLS’ AND WOMEN’S FOOTBALL CAMPAIGN

UEFA PARTNERS WITH MILLIE BOBBY BROWN TO SUPPORT GIRLS’ AND WOMEN’S FOOTBALL CAMPAIGN



Two-time Emmy-nominated actor Millie Bobby Brown hopes to inspire girls in Luxembourg
to play football as she becomes the latest ambassador
of UEFA’s hugely successful Together #WePlayStrong campaign.

Announcing her support for girls’ and women’s football, Millie, a role-model for teenage girls across the world,
told how she grew up kicking a ball around with her football-loving family.

“I’ve grown up playing football with my family so I was really excited
when UEFA approached me to join the squad,” Millie said.

“What I love about Together #WePlayStrong is its values –
they’re not only centred around football but also friendship, building confidence, teamwork and equality.”

To mark the partnership, Millie surprised local girls at London’s Wembley Stadium
at a once-in-a-lifetime training session.

“Kicking the ball around with the girls was really cool and fun —
it felt great to be part of a team that has such a strong sense of unity.
Even though it felt a little intimidating to join in on a football session for the first time in a while,
I had so much fun and would encourage any girl thinking about trying the sport to just give it a go,” Millie continued.

Through the Together #WePlayStrong campaign, UEFA aims to
make football more culturally relevant and aspirational for girls in their teenage years.
This forms an integral part of its five-year strategic plan to make football the number one sport
for girls and women in each of its 55 national associations.
