Woking Football Club to sign the Corporate Covenant

29th December 2015

Woking Football Club to sign the Corporate Covenant Early in 2016, Woking Football Club will publicly pledge its support to the armed forces community by signing the Corporate Covenant. The covenant is a promise between the nation, government and the Armed Forces to treat our serving personnel, veterans and their families with fairness and respect and exists to redress the disadvantages that the armed forces community may face in comparison to other citizens, recognising sacrifices made.

The club’s promise will be to support the Armed Forces in practical ways, including:
  1. A willingness to provide work experience in the day-to-day running of all elements of a professional football club.

  2. Provide experience for forces football officials and Physical Training instructors in a professional football club; training, officiating etc.

  3. Establish close links with local Army units (in the Pirbright area) to provide community engagement as part of our Cardinals in the Community efforts; youth football, women’s football.

  4. Work with Military veterans as part of our over 50 walking football scheme.

  5. Work with needy military veterans where appropriate as part of our mental health league.

  6. Engage with military music to participate in the annual Marching Band Competition held at The Laithwaite Community Stadium and perform at National League and other home games.

To kick-off its intent to sign the covenant and engage with The Armed Forces, the club is offering all forces personnel and MOD civilian staff concession rate admission to home games on production of recognised ID, starting with the game against Aldershot on 2nd January, 2016.
