As part of the club’s 2017/18 event calendar, Saturday’s game will be dedicated to raise money and awareness for the Charlton Athletic women’s team.
Supporters will see bucket collections for the team throughout the ground before the game and there will be a special four-page pullout in the programme to introduce fans to the women’s team, who currently top the FA Women’s Premier League South.
Other activity as part of Women’s Day at The Valley includes:
- A pre-match interview on the pitch with key players from the women’s team
- Women’s team players in the Family Activity Zone offering coaching advice for young players
- Women’s Team captain Kim Dixson signing autographs in the club shop with first-team player Jason Pearce before the pair then head to Valley Central to pit their skills on FIFA 18 against young Charlton fans
- A performance in the Family Activity Zone from 2pm from international female football freestyler Aguska Mnich
Charlton Athletic women’s team Chairman Stephen King said: “We’re all very much looking forward to Saturday and we’re hoping to raise as much money as possible to help continue our development.
“There is a lot going on and it provides a great opportunity for our players to meet and engage with Charlton fans young and old.”
Charlton CEO Katrien Meire said: “The women’s team have been doing incredibly well this season and it’s great to see them at the top of the table. We’re pleased to be able to put this game on to help support the club, which are an important part of the Charlton family.”
The dedicated game had originally been set for the postponed Peterborough United game earlier this month.
