Norwich City have joined the ‘On the Ball’ campaign and are pleased to be providing female fans with free sanitary products around the stadium.
In partnership with Anglian Chemicals, sanitary products will be available in every female toilet at Carrow Road, beginning with this Sunday’s Premier League fixture against Arsenal to ensure supporters in attendance are provided with the essential products that the Club believes they shouldn’t have to pay for.
The On the Ball campaign, founded by three female football fans, aims to lift the stigma around periods and highlight the issue of period poverty.
City’s Canaries’ Trust Chairman, Robin Sainty said: “More than 25 percent of Premier League fans are women so On the Ball is a campaign that the Canaries Trust have always strongly supported, and we want to thank Norwich City for the enthusiasm with which they have embraced our suggestion of the provision of free sanitary products.
“This may have been a taboo subject in a male dominated game, but no longer.”
