Football is a beautiful game that can help create bright futures for players, by keeping everyone fit, healthy and active.

But we understand that football has an impact on the environment. For starters, there are a lot of car journeys involved with getting 400+ girls to training sessions and matches every week!

As a responsible club, we want to do whatever we can to minimise our impact. So, starting this season, we are planting one tree for every player that registers with the club. We hope that as we grow as a club, our little forest will grow too.

We know this isn’t the answer to all the problems, but it’s where we have chosen to start our journey towards being a more sustainable football club.

We’ll be partnering with Ecologi for this important work. Through them, we are funding tree planting and reforestation projects around the globe. We have already planted 444 trees for the players registered in the 23-24 season.

Keep an eye out here for more eco updates in the future. Plus, you can check in on our trees here.
