CITY TO SUPPORT 'HEADS UP' AGAINST GRIMSBY

5 February 2020

The Bantams' shirts will bear the 'Heads Up' logo - during Saturday's visit of Grimsby Town. 

City are uniting with football clubs across the country to kick off the biggest-ever conversation on mental health.

Stuart McCall's first game back in the home dugout will mark his side's support of 'Heads Up' - a partnership between the FA and Heads Together, spearheaded by HRH The Duke of Cambridge. 

All clubs in the Premier League, English Football League, The National League, The Barclays FA Women’s Super League, The FA Women’s Championship and The FA Women’s National League will take part, each having a match dedicated to 'Heads Up' over the next two weekends. 

The campaign - launched in November - aims harness the influence and popularity of football to normalise the conversation around mental health.

The Heads Up Weekends will highlight the power of talking as a way to support one another and dispel the stigma, with activity planned at fixtures across the men’s and women’s football calendar.

The deal to have the logo featured on playing shirts was struck following an all-club EFL meeting in Birmingham - which was attended by Prince William, HRH the Duke of Cambridge. 

EFL chairman, Rick Parry, said: “Through our ground-breaking partnership with Mind, the EFL and its clubs have worked hard to improve the approach to mental health in football and wider society, over the past two seasons.

“Football provides a platform like no other to raise awareness and tackle society’s biggest issues and we’re proud to offer our support to the Heads Up campaign, as football comes together to further encourage the conversation around mental health.

"I look forward to seeing the impact over the two weekends.”

Join the conversation using #KickOffAConversation and #HeadsUp.
