Needham Market Football Club are delighted to announce a new partnership with Her Game Too, which aims to raise awareness of sexist abuse within the realms of football.
Needham Market FC join a number of clubs from the EFL and beyond to commit to the cause, creating further awareness to the problems faced in football by females.
HerGameToo was founded by 12 passionate female football fans who are committed to growing the campaign with the aim of fostering an ethos in football in which women are welcomed and respected equally.
The non-profit organisation aims to create awareness, educate, research, develop a strong sense of community and create strong relationships with clubs, among much more.
Further aims include creating regular content to champion women in football (players, staff and fans), creating strong relationships with club trusts and communities, having a presence at football grounds and sports bars to build a more welcoming environment for young girls and women as well as continuing to campaign against sexism in football and online abuse.
“It’s brilliant to partner up with Needham Market FC," said Lucy Ford of HerGameToo. "They are a club who do so much for equality in the community already so they match the values of HerGameToo perfectly.
"Discrimination has no place in football and we can’t thank Needham enough for backing our movement and for helping us to stamp sexism out of the game."
Freya Louis, Girls’ & Women’s Development Manager at Needham Market FC said: “We’re delighted to announce this partnership with HerGameToo. We are always looking for ways to promote, encourage and champion the girls and women in our club and this partnership confirms our commitment to making football an equal playing field to all at Bloomfields.”
