GB DEAF FOOTBALL WOMEN are new JBG? partners.
Here at JUST A BALL GAME? (JBG?) we are very pleased to announce our latest partner to back our campaign work, Great Britain Deaf Football Women.
The direct visibility aspect of this promotion will send out a very clear and inspirational message of encouragement to other football teams, that they too can engage in a similar way to tackle the unacceptable problem of homophobia in the game.
Founder of JBG? Lindsay England said:“With the Deaf Olympics 2017 and UEFA Women's Euro’s about to get underway, and interest in the women’s game at an all-time high we feel it’s a good time to highlight having the GB Deaf Football women's team on board and give girls and women of all abiliities and communities who want to play football and opportunity to see what they could achieve.”
GB captain Claire Stancliffe says,"There is no place at all for prejudice of any kind in football.” And continued,“That is why the work of JUST A BALL GAME? who are making a real difference is so important and why they need our support.”
GB Women will face Poland in the opening group game 18th July 10:00, then Brazil 20th and Russia 22nd July.
