UTRECHT, July 15, 2017 – A momentous new Young Reporters Programme has kicked off in the Netherlands on Friday, where through the collaboration of AIPS and UEFA, 13 young journalists will be given the opportunity to cover and learn from the UEFA Women’s Euro 2017 in the Netherlands.

The latest AIPS Young Reporters Programme will take place from 14 July-7 August and will be based in Utrecht and Enschede and will, for the first time, be concurrent with a senior level football tournament.

The promising young journalists, aged 19-26, each coming from the nations participating in the Women’s Euro 2017, will be joined by seasoned AIPS mentors who will provide daily training on the coverage of an major international sporting event within the spheres of writing, interviewing, photography, video and social media.

The program will focus on rising role of women’s football and on the role of new media and technologies in the coverage of sport. Through these realms the Young Reporters will engage with their own national teams as well as learning to work out of their comfort zones and covering the matches and stories of nations other than their own for AIPS and for their local media.

The 12th edition of the UEFA’s Women’s Euro will be featuring in an expanded format of 16 teams for the first time, mirroring the fact that women’s football has become a top priority for the European football body.

The championship is scheduled to kick off on 16 July with the opening match in Group A featuring hosts Netherlands v Norway. The group stage will end on 27 July and two days later the knockout stage commences with the quarter-finals. The final is on 6 August in Enschede.
