WOMEN'S EURO's 2022 in MK
Dan and Richard from the LPR F.C. Committee were lucky enough to be invited to an evening at MK Stadium to learn about the Women’s Euros 2022 and the projects and opportunities surrounding this exciting event.
The evening was brilliantly hosted by Ellie Reid, MK’s Women’s participation Officer, who was joined by John Cove, Director of MK Dons & Chair of MK Dons SET, Maralyn Smith, MK Dons SET CEO, Janette Murphy, Leisure & Community Officer and other members of the MK Dons team and local council members.
It’s very exciting to have world-class talent on display in a major European tournament right on our doorsteps. It gives us all the opportunity to feel the passion, see the skill, the determination and courage as the best on the continent compete to become European champions.

There are a plethora of existing girls and women’s football projects from supporting mums to try something new or return to football in fun supportive environments, to walking football, wildcats and more.
