Community chief involved in new campaign

Pompey in the Community’s Clare Martin will play a key role in the start of the new football season at the Blues’ home match against Carlisle on Saturday.

To mark the start of the new campaign, the EFL have launched their #EFLStories campaign to tell the stories of all the people who help make the EFL what it is – a football experience for everyone.

Launching today with an #EFLStories video, over the course of the 2016/17 season the EFL will share individual accounts from a plethora fans, players, managers, club staff and a mascot or two, with each person sharing the reasons why they love football via their favourite memories, tales and feelings about the wider game.

Across the opening two weekends of the season, the first 72 people featured on the #EFLStories website will have the privilege of delivering their club’s new Mitre match ball to the pitch at the first home league game.

With #EFLStories ball presentations taking place across all three divisions of the Sky Bet EFL, each person nominated for this honour has been put forward by their favourite EFL club.

Pompey in the Community’s CEO Clare Martin will deliver the ball at Fratton Park on Saturday, having helped the charity become the thriving and inspirational scheme it is now.

All the #EFLStories can be viewed at and EFL fans at home and abroad are being invited to submit the reasons why they love the game to the site.

With the campaign continuing throughout the 2016/17 season, the EFL will be sharing a variety of the stories, photos and videos across social media.
