AFC Fylde is delighted to announce that it has teamed up with Her Game Too anti-sexism initiative ahead of this weekend’s fixture against Hereford FC.
We can announce a new partnership with HerGameToo, which aims to raise awareness of sexist abuse within the realms of football, and this weekend’s game against Hereford will be dedicated to the campaign.
The Coasters join several clubs from the EFL and beyond to commit to the cause, creating further awareness of 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.
HerGameToo aims to:
- Create awareness
- Develop a strong sense of community
- Create regular content to champion women in football (players, staff AND fans)
- Create strong relationships with clubs
- Create strong relationships with club trusts and communities
- Have a presence at football grounds and sports bars to build a more welcoming environment for young girls and women
- Continue to campaign against sexism in football
- Continue to campaign against online abuse
Chief Operating Officer David Bottomley said about the partnership: “We are thrilled to announce a partnership with Her Game Too ahead of this weekend’s National League North fixture against Hereford FC.
“It’s important, more than ever, to raise awareness and campaign against sexism in football. The game is for everyone of all genders and beyond, and we aim to continue to support the HerGameToo initiative further than just Saturday’s game.”
