A project and message from LISA – The Ladyimps Supporters Association –
As fans we know the incredible feeling when Lincoln City FC score at Sincil Bank, and we also know football is more than the game. Football has the power to bring people together in a really unique way. We’ve seen it as the club has enjoyed it’s successes and galvanised the city and the Lady Imps Supporters Association has also seen this in action. Working on the #FansFor Diversity project with the FSA and Kick It Out we have previously hosted people from the Eastern European community, the Afghan Hazara community in Lincoln and also built friendships with the Bangla bantam fan group at Bradford City AFC – furthering historic ties with the West Yorkshire club. It’s brought new people together, new people to the club and is part of enhancing the clubs values around inclusion.
Knowing there are sometimes different barriers which get in the way of people attending live football we aim to address any misapprehensions and show that our club is welcoming and offers so much more than a 90 minute game – exciting though that is!
Every home league fixture we will be inviting different groups to come to a game at the LNER stadium (Sincil Bank) and they will also be invited to attend a Lincoln City Women FC fixture at Moorlands FC (the team’s new home for 21/22 season). They will not only hopefully enjoy the matchday experience, but will find out about all the other positive things the Lincoln City family can offer, from social activities with fans and Lincoln City Foundation, to football training and education and community projects people linked with the club are involved with.
