Scotland winger Lisa Evans will once more be lining up alongside some of the biggest names in women’s football, as UEFA launches its new-look Together #WePlayStrong YouTube channel.
Having been part of the pilot series of YouTube vlogs last year, the Arsenal star will once more be giving viewers an inside look at life as a professional football player, as well as sharing how she spends her time when she’s not on the football pitch, as she gears up for Scotland’s debut at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France this summer.
Fans will be able to watch exclusive content and daily insights into players’ routines: funny challenges, beauty and style tips, and health and fitness advice; as well as providing a platform to inspire women and girls across Europe who love football to share their experiences of the beautiful game.

“It’s great to be able to give young girls and aspiring players a glimpse into what life is like as a footballer,” said Evans.
“Vlogging last year for #WePlayStrong was a brilliant way to bring fans closer to the women’s game, and 2019 is a really exciting year for me on the road to the World Cup, so it’s going to be amazing to be able to take viewers with me on this journey.
“UEFA’s Together #WePlayStrong YouTube channel is so accessible and gives us a platform to hopefully inspire girls across Europe to pick up a ball and enjoy the sport too.”
Evans returns to the content creator squad alongside Madrid CFF’s German star Eunice Beckmann and Austrian duo Laura Feiersinger and Sarah Zadrazil of FFC Frankfurt and FFC Turbine Potsdam respectively, all of whom helped the pilot YouTube vlog series receive nearly 6 million views last year.
The quartet will be joined by a trio of newcomers for 2019; Sweden and Juventus defender Petronella Ekroth, Netherlands and Olympique Lyonnais striker Shanice van de Sanden and world champion freestyle footballer and #WePlayStrong ambassador Liv Cooke join the team as they seek to bring fresh, exciting content to football fans across Europe.
The Together #WePlayStrong YouTube channel has been created to cultivate the growing community of girls’ and women’s football players and fans, encouraging more to feel proud to play and feel inspired by showcasing confidence and togetherness, as part of UEFA’s ongoing strategy to grow participation of girls’ and women’s football in each of their 55 national associations.
