Gillingham Football Club is delighted to announce a new working partnership with Her Game Too.
The campaign was launched in May 2021 to widespread support on social media - leading to the campaign's hashtag of #HerGameToo trending on Twitter in the build-up to the Emirates FA Cup final and launch video for the campaign, gaining over 1 million views.
Since the campaign's launch, #HerGameToo has surveyed over 400 female football fans to build a wider picture of the experiences they have faced when attending games.
Sexist abuse or harassment will not be tolerated at Gillingham and by working closely with the #HerGameToo campaign we hope to create a safe environment at MEMS Priestfield Stadium for all supporters.
Her Game Too are looking into methods people can report sexist abuse or harassment and they will continue to reach out to female fans to evaluate the current matchday experience and make appropriate changes, which Gillingham will fully support.
A club spokesperson said: “We are delighted to be supporting Her Game Too ahead of the 2022/23 season and we look forward to working together on a number of initiatives.
“Sexist abuse and/or harassment will not be tolerated at MEMS Priestfield Stadium; we are a proud, welcoming family club and we are committed to making the venue a safe and welcoming environment for female football fans of all ages.”
Eve Ralph – cofounder of Her Game Too had this to say: “We are very grateful to Gillingham for the support with the campaign and look forward to working together to ensure football is a welcoming place for all. The club has some really exciting plans, and we look forward to seeing where this partnership will take them in regards to supporting female fans in the future.”
