Pledgeball seek partners and advocates to support on their Women’s World Cup Campaign

June 05 2023 - News Release News Editorial

Pledgeball are inviting anyone and everyone to get involved with their upcoming Women’s World Cup Campaign. The campaign aims to reduce emissions in 2 ways:

Pledgeball seek partners and advocates to support on their Women’s World Cup Campaign
  1. By rallying this wonderful, unique, international community of fans to collectively reduce emissions and take a stand on environmental sustainability
  2. By supporting girls’ access to education, both in the UK and abroad

Pledgeball are a UK-based, research-backed charity that unites football fans to tackle climate change and environmental sustainability.

Pledgeball works very simply: it encourages fans to make pro-environmental pledges in support of their clubs. The amount of emissions pledged to be saved determines a club’s standing within the Pledgeball League table.

Throughout the World Cup, advocates from competing nations across the world will be encouraging fellow fans to make pledges in support of their national teams, pushing their teams up the League Table in the process and entering the draw to win prizes!

After the 2022 Euro’s, the Lionesses sent an open letter to the UK Government calling on them to ensure that girls are able to play football in PE lessons. Girls accessing education has the potential of avoiding nearly 85 gigatonnes of carbon emissions and ‘girls who play sports…are more likely to get better grades in school’.

Pledgeball are inviting support from:

  • Advocates: individuals, teams, organisations who will encourage fellow fans to get involved. Register here to join Pledgeball (together with some very special friends and organisations) online at 7pm on 14th June to find out more.
  • Prizes: if you’re able to donate a prize please contact Pledgeball at media@pledgeball.org
  • Sponsors: if you’d like to be involved in this campaign please contact Ben at ben.mole@pledgeball.org
