Her Game Too weekend celebrates International Women’s Day

Saturday’s JD Cymru Premier League game versus Cardiff Met University FC will be dedicated to Her Game Too Cymru in celebration of International Women’s Day.

International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global occasion that recognizes the social, economic, cultural, and political accomplishments of women. At the beginning of the 2023/24 season, Her Game Too Cymru established a significant partnership with the Football Association of Wales’ Genero Adran Leagues and JD Cymru Leagues. This partnership reflects a joint commitment to promoting inclusivity and equality in Welsh Football, aiming to make the sport more diverse and welcoming for everyone.

The Her Game Too weekend will provide clubs with the chance to showcase their women role models and engage further with their fanbases, contributing to the campaign’s impact across the country.

Roopa Vyas, Director and Founder of Her Game Too Cymru, expressed enthusiasm about the dedicated fixture weekend, seeing it as a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness about sexism in football. Vyas highlighted the historic collaboration with the leagues in September 2023, marking the first national leagues partnership for Her Game Too. This initiative underscores their dedication to fostering inclusivity and equality in the sport.

Jack Sharp, FAW Head of Domestic Leagues, expressed pride in being the first national leagues partnered with Her Game Too. The aim is to continue creating a Welsh football environment where all fans, players, and staff feel respected and supported.

Newtown AFC looks forward to providing Her Game Too with a platform to encourage and support women in the sport over the coming months.
