Fan Engagement Manager Lisa Squires said: “It has been great seeing the Charlton family pull together to promote women in football ahead of International Women’s Day. A lot of work has been done since the club partnered with Her Game Too two years ago and we are continually looking at how we can make matchdays at The Valley more attractive and engaging for women and girls.”

Jade Hannan, the club’s Her Game Too ambassador, added: “Saturday’s game falls in line with International Women’s Day so it’s great for us as a club to recognise our female supporters, as well as the staff behind the scenes such as Tracey Leaburn and Charlotte Richardson.

“Football should be a safe space for every single fan, male and female, and Her Game Too is an organisation and incentive to ensure fans are supported in enjoying the matchday experience as well as on social media platforms too.”

This event is part of our All Together, All Different, All Charlton project, supported by the Premier League Charitable Fund #PLFund.
