With an ever-growing female fanbase, throughout the weekend, Clubs will be profiling female supporters and some of the initiatives that are being delivered to attract more women and girls to EFL matches

With the aim of giving a new generation of fans a taste of life in the EFL, the League’s partner, eBay has also gifted hundreds of tickets to local female fan groups of clubs such as asylum seekers, refugees, and migrants from Migrants Organise who will be attending Queens Park Rangers’ fixture with Cardiff City.

Ahead of the weekend, the EFL has produced a video featuring some of those dedicated supporters groups including Lincoln City’s Lady Imps Supporters Association, the Amber Belles from Cambridge United, and Huddersfield Town fans who are behind their ‘Women at the Game’ initiative.
