To celebrate International Women’s Day and to launch a new partnership with Her Game Too, Bath City FC are warmly inviting daughters, sisters, wives, mums, aunties, grandmas and nieces to Twerton Park on the 9th March for the Men’s first team fixture against Farnborough and / or the 10th March for the Women’s First team match against Shaftesbury.
WIth free entry for all children under 16 when accompanied by a full paying adult (up to 4 children per adult), there will be plenty going on for all the family including an ice cream van, tuck shop, penalty shoot-out in Charlie’s, face-painting, Design-A-Kit competition and flag waving on the pitch for under 12s.
The Romans will be accompanied onto the pitch just before 3pm KO on Saturday by an all-female team of Mascots from Bath City Youth Girls U12s team, there will be a penalty shootout on the pitch at half time with players from the Women’s first team and the club is expecting a very special visit from Somerset FA’s mascot Blaze (and Bladud, of course!).
Sunday will then see Bath City Women’s First team take on Shaftesbury at Twerton Park. With free entry for all, what better way to spend Mother’s Day than cheering on from the terraces in the final BCFC women’s fixture of the season. Kick off at 2pm.
Her Game Too is an award winning campaign that was started in 2021 and aims to create a safe and inclusive environment for all female supporters, where they feel empowered to engage with the game and are treated with respect both on and off the pitch. They aim to promote the visibility of women’s football and encourage its growth through championing the women’s game and supporting grassroots girls’ football development.
