The format is simple, families register via the website, select the team they would like to play for and then each week your club will play against a rival. You score goals by completing planet-saving football activities, post a picture on the Planet Super League social channels and by the end of the 11 weeks your club could be the winner of the PSL2 trophy!
Plus - a great consolation prize for all participants is that they’ll have cut their family’s annual carbon footprint by up to two tonnes.
A Planet Super League spokesperson said: "Planet Super League wants to help everyone take action on climate change. We organise tournaments which engage football fans to complete planet-saving football activities. Each week families play for their club against a rival and at the end of the 11 weeks the club with the most points wins the PSL Cup. This season 24 professional football clubs are taking part and we’re delighted to also be working with Birmingham County FA to reach football fans at the grassroots level. The biggest impact any football organisation can have on the planet is to inspire its fans to take action and we look forward to seeing how all the families get on."
Richard Lindsay, Business Insights Manager & Project Lead for Save Today, Play Tomorrow, said: “Being part of the Planet Super League initiative is an incredible opportunity for us and our member clubs, their teams and families. We all know that climate change is a huge problem, but football can play its part in helping to tackle some of the issues. By joining Planet Super League and completing their fun, family-based Covid friendly activities players will be making a tangible difference to their local community and their lives.”
The project has already attracted wide media interest, featuring recently on BBC news and across social media.
