If we want to see more women’s sport – in the papers, online and on television – then we have to prove that we will watch it. We have to actually show up.
This means going to events and proving to journalists, programmers and also corporate sponsors that the appetite for women’s sport is very real. As Sue Tibballs, Chief Executive of the WSFF, recently said “sponsorship follows the eyeballs” – we need to bring our eyeballs to the game!
We will be highlighting a few “Show ups” on this page. Exercise your influence just by showing up at women’s sports events.
