Players to wear #HerGameToo warm-up tops
This weekend will see the Club celebrate #HerGameToo at our men's first-team fixture against Cambridge United and the Women's match against Southampton on Sunday.
The Club partnered with the campaign in February which aims for women and girls of all ages to feel confident and safe sharing their opinion about football online and in real life without fear of sexist abuse.
Just over 18% of the Club's 2021/22 season ticket holders are female, while almost 25% of our Junior Blues members are female.
Our dedicated weekend will see a variety of activity taking place which will showcase the opportunities for young girls and women at the Club.
Both the men's and women's team will wear #HerGameToo warm-up t-shirts to raise awareness of the campaign.
The matchday programme at both games will have #HerGameToo content throughout, with the logo included on both front covers.
Participants of the Community Trust's Wildcats and girls EPDC centres will receive tickets to watch the Blues take on Cambridge, whilst all U16s go free with as paying adult at the Goldstar Ground to watch Town Women on Sunday.
In the FanZone on Saturday, the Community Trust will be running girls only coaching sessions which will take place from 1.30pm. Participants from our girls Community programme will be the ballgirls for the match. Liz Edwards, our supporter liaison officer, will also have an extensive #HerGameToo feature at the SLO Hub.
Members of the Club's #HerGameToo WhatsApp group will be present in the FanZone and happy to talk to anyone wishing to find out more.
