Prague Raptors Football Club join up with Her Game Too anti-sexism initiative
Prague Raptors Football Club are delighted to announce a new partnership with Her Game Too, which aims to raise awareness of sexist abuse within the realms of football.
Prague Raptors Football Club will be the first club outside of the UK to join in a commitment to the cause, creating further awareness to the problems faced in football by females.
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.
The non-profit organisation aims to create awareness, educate, research, develop a strong sense of community and create strong relationships with clubs, among much more.
Further aims include creating regular content to champion women in football (players, staff and fans), creating strong relationships with club trusts and communities, having a presence at football grounds and sports bars to build a more welcoming environment for young girls and women as well as continuing to campaign against sexism in football and online abuse.
"It’s brilliant to partner up with Prague Raptors Football Club as the first club outside of English football we are delighted to have them on board" said Victoria Wood of HerGameToo. They are a club who do so much for equality in the community already so they match the values of HerGameToo perfectly"
"Discrimination has no place in football and we can’t thank Prague Raptors enough for backing our movement and for helping us to stamp sexism out of the game."
Raptors President, Daz Moss, had this to add "We are thrilled to be joining this amazing project - I have personally watched it grow since it first launched and massively admire everyone involved. From the very beginning of setting up the club we have aimed at giving our Women's team the same as the Men's. My daughter, Maya, is in the Raptors academy and I want her and all of our other young players to grow up with the thought that they deserve to play as much as the boys and that they should have the same opportunities to do so. As we are a relatively new club we are still learning and making mistakes as we grow, so this is a great opportunity for us to learn from the other people in the project who have far more experience than we do. We cannot wait to promote the project at our upcoming FA Cup Quarter Final match against Viktoria Plzeň on Feb 26th."
The Raptors will be wearing HerGameToo warm-up t-shirts before this weekend's match.
