Pledgeball: Climate crisis toolkit for fans

Football’s environmental campaign group Pledgeball have launched their new toolkit, designed to help supporter groups tackle the climate crisis.

The FSA have been partnered with Pledgeball since January 2022 as we look to do our bit to tackle the climate crisis and empower match-going fans.

Pledgeball’s latest toolkit is an introduction to the issues around the climate crisis for all fans and supporter groups – and crucially outlining steps they can take at club level to make a difference.

“When it comes to the environment and sustainability, most fans believe that football should and can do more to address its impact on the environment” – Pledgeball

The guide is packed full of ideas that cover lobbying, engagement, campaign steps that supporters can implement at local level.

What is Pledgeball?

Pledgeball is a research-driven organisation that rallies football fans to bring about change to help to preserve our planet – and supporters can find out more via the Pledgeball website.

Katie Cross, founder of Pledgeball, said: “The football fan community is unparalleled in its potential to drive change: the impact this community could have on the biggest challenge we have ever faced, one that will affect all that we care about from families to football, is huge.
“I am delighted to be working with the FSA and its members to drive this change.”
