Men's football news

We are pleased to share that our home match with Haringey Borough on Saturday 25 November will be in support of White Ribbon Day with our Sistership, Survivors Network.

We are once again teaming up with Survivors Network to kick off the UN’s 16 days of activism against gender-based violence, marked by White Ribbon Day.

For the game, our players will wear the white away kit, with the captain wearing a special white ribbon armband. As well as this, white ribbons will be tied around 1 in 4 seats in the seated stand, to signify the 1 in 4 women that are survivors of gender-based violence.

Culture change doesn’t happen overnight, but we can work together to end men’s violence against women and girls in our lifetimes.

This year, for White Ribbon Day we are encouraging men and boys to #CallHimOut in an effort to #ChangeTheStory for women and girls, so that they may live their lives free from the fear of violence.

Violence experienced by women and girls takes many forms. Some behaviours and words may seem ‘harmless’ but normalising them ignores the short- and long-term effects on women and can lead to more extreme violence.

Stand together with Lewes FC and Survivors’ Network this White Ribbon Day #CallHimOut.
