Held on International Women's Day, the first ECA Workshop on Women's Club Football reunited over 55 participants from 22 different countries in Barcelona on the 8th of March 2016. Organised at La Masia - Centre de Formació Oriol Tort in collaboration with FC Barcelona Femení, this first ever workshop dedicated to women's club football saw the participation of representatives from 35 different clubs, two European leagues as well as officials from both FIFA and UEFA.
Focused mainly on organisation, strategy and crisis management, the ECA Workshop on Women's Club Football featured three case studies - each followed by a Q&A session during which the audience was able to share ideas and experiences related to the different topics - a lively panel discussion and a tour of the Academy facilities used by the women's team as well as all youth teams of FC Barcelona to end the day.
The event proved very informative and the active participation of all attendees underlined the fact that Women's Club Football is a fast growing reality in the European football landscape.
