USWNT // WOSO // US Soccer Fans

So yesterday I made a post greeting my newest followers I had gotten over the weekend. I gave a little tease about wanting to do a give-away for you guys once I got to this specific amount of followers. I was over 100 followers away from my goal and somehow over the past 24hrs I more than doubled my deficit. With that being said, I’m way past my goal and now want to go forward with this.

This is where I need your guys’ help! I want some suggestions from you guys on what kind of give-away you’d want. Whether it’s a Ultimate Merchandise Package, a jersey, or anything you can think of. Nothing is off the table for a suggestion. I want to do what you guys want!

I just want to do it for you guys to thank you and the best fandom ever. You guys seriously have changed my life so leave a reply on this or go to my ask and let me know what you think. I want to start the “contest” in the next week or so. 

Thank you all so much,

FIFA is set to double its development funding for women’s football for the next four-year cycle and has this month released the FIFA Women’s Football Development Programmes and Guidelines 2015-2018 as part of the preparations. 
The guidelines provide all 209 member associations (MAs) with the necessary information to apply for and benefit from FIFA’s women’s football development programmes for 2015-2018. They have been developed based on feedback from member associations and confederations as well as players, coaches, referees and officials who participated in the 2011-2014 programmes. 
In total, there are nine different types of programmes for MAs to choose from, focusing on four main areas of football development – competitions, management, education and promotion. This includes the Live Your Goals campaign launched in 2011 to inspire more young girls and women to get involved in football. 
The new guidelines also outline FIFA’s ten key development principles for women’s football, which were defined by the FIFA Task Force for Women’s Football and approved by the 64th FIFA Congress on 11 June 2014. Additionally, MAs have another useful resource in the form of the new brochure Women’s Football: Progression, Rise and Challenges published recently on FIFA.com.
 MAs can submit applications to the FIFA Development Office in their respective region on a yearly basis by mid-October. A standard budget request and financial report form have been created to ensure financial transparency – an important aspect for FIFA-funded programmes in line with the General Regulations for FIFA Development Programmes that came into force in July 2013. 
FIFA expects and helps its member associations and the confederations to support and develop women’s football. A lot of progress has been made but there is much more work that can be done by the global football community to harness its true potential for growth.
