Club Partners with HerGameToo
Woking Football Club is proud to be partnering with HerGameToo.
The Club and HerGameToo collaborate with the commitment of supporting positive change for women and girls in football – as spectators, as participants, and members of staff.
The partnership will be launched at our home match versus Southend United, which will be played live in front of the BT Sport cameras.
The Vanarama National League match at the Laithwaite Community Stadium on Saturday 12th February, will have free admission for all women and girls at the gates on the day. Kick-off is scheduled for 5.20pm.
To our female Woking fans, you may collect your complimentary ticket at Gate 1 or Gate 4 on matchday.
To our female Southend fans, you may collect your complimentary ticket at Gate 2 on matchday. Southend fans are reminded that availability will be limited based on the away allocation.
In order to skip the matchday queues, fans can also collect these tickets in advance from the Club reception; Monday - Friday, 09:00 - 17:00.
Rosemary Johnson, Woking Football Club Chairman, said; "As someone who is one of the few women chairman in football I fully support this campaign. Football is for everyone and should be a game that all can enjoy, express their opinions, and be respected regardless of their sex. After 50 years of following football clubs I am still amazed at how few women are involved in the management of football clubs."
HerGameToo was founded by 12 passionate female football fans who are committed to growing the campaign with the aim of fostering an ethos in football in which women are welcomed and respected equally.
HerGameToo sees the value in everyone. They strive to be a catalyst for positive change and are driven by the same ideas they initially founded their Non-Profit Organization upon: support, empowerment, and progress.
“We are delighted to partner with Woking Football Club,” said HerGameToo founder Caz May.” Our aim is to work closely with the Club to raise awareness, campaign, and eradicate sexism from the game. Female supporters should feel safe watching the club they support and our campaign with Woking aims to create a positive change."
“This is a phenomenal opportunity for Woking Football Club,” said Woking Football Club Chief Executive John Katz. "Our goal at the Club is to foster a welcoming environment for our female supporters, staff members, players and backroom staff. Our commitment to equality is part of the Club’s ethos, and we’re excited to formalise our partnership with HerGameToo.”
“As a woman who has worked in the football industry for almost ten years, it means so much to me that my Club is supporting this hugely important campaign,” said Woking’s Ticketing and Client Services Manager Rebecca Markham.” I am excited to work with HerGameToo to help raise awareness of sexism in football and help create a safe environment for all women supporting Woking Football Club.”
