Her Game Too strives to tackle sexism within football

Northumberland FA are delighted to partner with Her Game Too in providing additional support and education within our county around sexism and discrimination. Her Game Too are a group of female supporters who are passionate about football and work across the country to eradicate sexism within the football industry. Her Game Too want women and girls of all ages to feel confident and safe when sharing their opinion about football both online and in real life without fear of sexist abuse.


Lucy Ford - Co Founder and Director of Her Game Too“We are delighted to be partnering up with Northumberland FA. 

It is extremely important to not only work with professional and grassroots clubs, but local County FAs to spread the Her Game Too message that football is a game for all.

It is a really exciting time to announce this partnership ahead of this evening's County Cup Final and we are looking forward to working together to promote our message and to also encourage women and girls to get involved in football in Northumberland."


Northumberland FA are thrilled about this partnership which will see both organisations collaborate to support our existing education provision. The partnership will see Her Game Too provide both in-person and online support around sexism and discrimination in football by delivering contextual workshops. Our grassroots football community will have the opportunity to register and engage in the workshops and information will follow in due course.


Lloyd Miller – Football Development Officer (Women & Girls) added, “Northumberland FA are delighted to partner with HerGameToo in broadening our provision that supports inclusivity within our grassroots community. HerGameToo strives towards helping eradicate sexism within the football industry and is an organisation that wants women and girls of all ages to feel confident and safe in sharing their opinion about football both online and in real life without fear of sexist abuse. This partnership will also see their support come to life in the form of workshop delivery here in our county. HerGameToo will offer both online and in-person workshops during the 2024/25 season to support education around sexism and discrimination, whilst also helping to increase their campaign footprint within the Northumberland grassroots community.”


Jill Simmonds – Her Game too Ambassador also added: "HerGameToo not only raises awareness of the issues females can face in football, but also celebrates the growing participation. The number of girls playing in the North East is increasing which is fantastic news. However, encouraging more female supporters, coaches, officials, physios and women in business roles is just as important. Making safe spaces for all of this to happen is key and one which has been established in many areas across the region. Issues will occur, but we are here to support and encourage girls to pursue their football dreams, be it on the playing field or the board room. Reporting systems are vital to helping confront these issues and ensures females feel heard and valued within the sport.  Having a partnership with Northumberland FA helps us to raise awareness of the campaign and also educate people about our aims and objectives and we look forward to working together more closely in the future."


Northumberland FA look forward to positive outcomes that will emerge from this partnership, aiming to foster a more inclusive and supportive football community in the county. With Her Game Too's expertise and dedication, the collaboration promises to be a catalyst for meaningful change within Northumberland's grassroots football.
