Preston North End will dedicate its Good Friday fixture against Millwall to the Her Game Too campaign.
The club recently announced a formal partnership with Her Game Too, a campaign raising awareness of, and aiming to combat, sexist abuse in football.
The campaign was founded almost a year ago by 12 female football fans upon the values of support, empowerment and progress with the aim of creating an ethos within football, online and in real life, that is welcoming and inclusive of women.
The partnership was announced ahead of last month’s dedicated Women’s Weekend fixture, against AFC Bournemouth, with Preston North End Community and Education Trust [PNECET] – the club’s official charity – inviting over 100 female participants to the game.
Similarly, more than 100 female supporters and participants will once again be invited to our dedicated Her Game Too fixture to celebrate our female fans and participants, while we will host ambassadors and associates of the Her Game Too campaign.
Four girls grassroots football teams are participating in the half-time penalty shoot out while players will also be wearing Her Game Too warm-up t-shirts, and other themed graphics will also be visible around the stadium.
Preston North End Club Secretary Ben Rhodes said: “We’re pleased to be continuing to show our support for the Her Game Too campaign with our dedicated matchday.
“We look forward to providing complimentary match tickets to female participants of Preston North End Community and Education Trust, and welcoming the Her Game Too team and our four girls’ grassroots teams to Deepdale, to showcase the welcoming and inclusive matchday atmosphere at Preston North End.”
Michelle Hill, Her Game Too ambassador for Preston North End, said: “Our Her Game Too matchday is a fantastic opportunity to promote the work of Her Game Too and raise awareness of the work that Her Game Too, Preston North End and the Community and Education Trust are doing to get as many girls involved in football as possible.”
