Leicester City in the Community Launch ‘We Are Leicester’

Leicester City in the Community, supported by Leicester City Football Club, are launching their revised strategy ahead of Saturday’s final Barclays Women’s Super League fixture of the season.

- Leicester City in the Community aim to foster a sense of belonging for all participants through the delivery of Education, Community and Targeted Interventions, utilising a ‘values-based’ collaborative approach
- The development of Community Hubs is central to Leicester City in the Community’s strategy
- Connection and belonging to Leicester City is facilitated by player engagement and matchday experiences, as well as increased brand awareness in community settings
- There’s a place for everyone at Leicester City in the Community 

The Club’s charitable arm will unveil their revised Community Engagement Strategy for 2024 to 2027, ahead of LCFC Women’s final WSL fixture of the 2023/24 campaign.

During Saturday’s WSL matchday, Leicester City in the Community will run a number of sessions to celebrate its launch – with female participants from the National Citizenship Service (NCS) programme invited to King Power Stadium.

Funded by Premier League Fans Fund, a grant to strengthen connections between football clubs, their fans and local communities, 15 young people will be experiencing ‘Corporate for Kids’, including a three-course meal and the opportunity to meet LCFC Women stars post-match.

Furthermore, the New Parks Community Awards will take place, recognising the support and impact people and organisations make in our community – which will provide a blueprint for collaboration.

Leicester City in the Community launched its first Community Hub, in partnership with Team Hub, New Parks, in 2021 – and the development of Community Hubs is central to the Community Strategy.

The lucky winners will be recognised at King Power Stadium, while participants from all three programmes will welcome LCFC Women players onto the pitch for the final time this season.  

Allison Tripney, Head of Community said: “Leicester City Football Club are passionate and dedicated partners of ours, integral to our success.

“We couldn’t do what we do without them, and we are committed to working together to deliver the outcomes of this strategy and raise awareness of our Club within its communities.  

“Our brilliant people engage, inspire and empower every day and I’m proud to lead this charity into our next phase of development together.”

Sophie Howard, LCFC Women defender said: “Giving back to our community is crucial to us as a team. 

“Leicester, as a community, has taken us all in, so for us, it’s giving back to people that have welcomed us.”
