City proud to partner with Her Game Too

City is proud to partner with Her Game Too and support a positive change for women in football.

The partnership will be launched at the men’s game against Cardiff on Saturday at Ashton Gate and the women’s match versus Charlton Women at the Robins High Performance Centre on Sunday.

Her Game Too is a campaign by a group of female supporters passionate about football and working to eradicate sexism in the football industry. They want 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.

Her Game Too co-founders Leah Case and Eve Ralph said: “To collaborate with a club we both support in Bristol City is huge for us. We’re really excited as we have both been coming to Ashton Gate for more than 18 years and have a close connection with the club.

“It’s a bit surreal, I don’t think it will feel real until I see it at Ashton Gate and the Robins High Performance Centre this weekend. I’ll definitely sit back then and realise we’ve done something big when I see the campaign being promoted and advertised at a club I have supported my whole life.

“Her Game Too came about in May 2021 when Caz May (founder) contacted us and 10 other female football fans from across the country as she noticed that there wasn’t anywhere or anyone who was taking a stand against sexist abuse in football.

“The initial idea was to create a video holding up comments that we have all received as women and female football fans but when that went viral, we were all overwhelmed and thought we can take this and grow. We have since partnered with many football clubs which has helped promote the cause and create a positive change. We want to have a platform where people can report the issues they face as well as educate people on what it’s currently like for females in this industry.

“At Her Game Too we have all experienced derogatory online or in person comments and that’s something we are striving to eradicate. We all want to raise awareness, make women feel safe and more enjoyable going to games.” 

Bristol City Women Chairperson and Bristol City Men’s Board Director Gavin Marshall said: “We as a club are delighted and proud to partner with Her Game Too. We fully support and understand that this campaign can empower and create positive change for women in football. At Bristol City we encourage all fans to come and watch the team they support and in no circumstances should they feel unsafe whilst doing so. We believe that football is for everyone and we want to play our part in the movement towards that goal.”

The Robins Foundation has invited young players from their weekly Wildcats sessions to enjoy the fixture at the Robins High Performance Centre on Sunday to further encourage young girls to support and play football.
