Nottingham Forest is delighted to confirm it is joining forces with the On The Ball campaign, which aims to ensure sanitary products for female supporters are provided free of charge across football grounds around the world.
The campaign will launch for this Saturday's match against Blackburn with free sanitary products in all female toilets at The City Ground.
On The Ball was founded by three female football supporters in 2018 with the aim of overcoming the stigma around periods and to tackle the issue of period poverty. Research indicates that 10% of women and girls are unable to afford sanitary wear, with a further 15% struggling with the cost.
Orlaith Duffy from On The Ball, said: “We are so happy that Nottingham Forest are on board with the campaign. Access to period products will be free and easy at The City Ground."
