Wakefield Trinity can confirm that we will be celebrating this Friday’s fixture against Hull KR by announcing our signing of the Her Game Too charter.
Over the past few years, the club has been at the forefront of driving the women’s game across the Rugby League world, supporting and growing the sport within both the club and at a grassroots level.
Founded in 2021, Her Game Too is a voluntary organisation, that works tirelessly to promote the campaign and raise awareness of the issues currently facing the sporting sector, ensuring that women are welcomed and treated equally.
Over the past two years, Her Game Too has rapidly grown across the sporting world, inviting interest from all four corners of the sporting landscape as well as global organisations such as JD Sports.
Now, as they find new and fresh routes into the women’s game, Wakefield Trinity will join Warrington Wolves in becoming the second Super League side to partner with the organisation.
From this, the club will look at new ways in which we can open conversations from the point-of-view of female supporters and make changes accordingly to suit those of every fan. This will be done by introducing female fan surveys and a designated emergency number on matchdays.
Speaking on the partnership, the Foundation’s Media & Commercial Executive, William Moore, said, “As a club, we are proud to be working with Her Game Too, who are committed to ensuring that sport is for the many and not the few.
“By showing support for this growing campaign, the club is looking to make positive changes in a bid to connect with female supporters of Wakefield Trinity. We are excited to see this partnership grow and blossom over the 2023 season and beyond.”
While Her Game Too Rugby lead, Ellie Indie, followed, “We at Her Game Too are excited to announce our second Super League partnership within the same month, with Wakefield Trinity joining the initiative.
“Both the club and Her Game Too have worked hard over the past few months to ensure that the measures we’ve put in place allow women to feel safe and supported when they step foot in the Be Well Support Stadium.
“We’re incredibly grateful to Wakefield Trinity for allowing us to champion our message of #HerGameToo and for their backing of our campaign. We aim to build a better future for women in all capacities of the game, whether that be playing, refereeing or cheering from the stands. The future is bright for women in Rugby League!”
More information on the partnership will be made available over the next couple of weeks, however, we are pleased to announce that Friday’s fixture will be our female inclusivity round as we invite those connected to the club to take part in both pre-match and half-time entertainment.
