Thank you for your enquiry – and welcome to Women at the Game.
How can you get involved?
We are establishing this new initiative for women of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicity, ability and religious belief to feel welcome and comfortable attending sports events together as a group. Initially this is in football but in time we hope this will spread to any other sport where spectators can watch the action live at a stadium, hall or other sports venue.
We are thrilled that you are interested – and we’re working on putting together materials to help you out with your plan. In the meantime, we have put together a basic toolkit to help you with your first match – Toolkit Rev 4.
The toolkit can be used by clubs, supporters’ trusts and individual fans who want to get behind this initiative. It helps you to pick a date to promote Women at the Game, recruit your new fans, and gives hints and tips on how you could do that. We think it’s ideal to ask your current female fans to volunteer to welcome your new visitors, and help them to settle in at the ground. (If you’re an individual who wants to help out, get in touch with your club or supporters’ trust and ask them to sign up for Women at the Game.)
We also have a questionnaire you might like to use as a basis for evaluating the success of your day – download it here.
If you have any suggestions, ideas, comments particularly from experiences, please do let us know so that we can develop and improve our materials to help women’s groups.
How can we help you?
We can help to put you in touch with women interested in attending your matches and with current fans who want to volunteer to help. We can offer advice on how to promote your event if you have a particular issue.
Please contact us for further information and if you decide to hold a Women at the Game event, please let us know all of the details so that we can promote you. We are happy to answer any questions based on our experience with Women at the Game – we are fans ourselves!
Welcome and thank you!
