Rotherham United fans in final race for Green Football Cup as Green Football Weekend begins

With only days to go until the winner of the Green Football Cup is decided, Rotherham United’s amazing fans are continuing to score green goals to help us climb the league and to help protect our world.
Fans score goals by taking climate-friendly actions, including taking shorter showers, eating more vegetarian meals and telling their clubs what they’d like them to do to go greener. Fans can choose, register and track their goals at www.greenfootballweekend.com
Amazing prizes are up for grabs for anybody taking part in Green Football Weekend, including a Sky Glass TV, signed men’s and women’s England shirts, tickets to Premier League Games, a voucher for a National Trust holiday cottage, tickets to the Football Supporters Association Awards, Football Manager game codes and BT Sport App passes.
It is estimated that 23 out of the 92 Football League clubs in the UK can expect total or partial annual flooding of their stadiums by 2050. UK football fans making small changes to their habits could make a huge difference:
- If the UK’s 31 million football fans buy second-hand or vintage clothes rather than new, they would save the same amount of carbon as planting 43.3 million trees per year.
- If they reduced their shower length to four minutes, they would save carbon equivalent to planting 58.9 million trees per year.
Fans can also save money by making small changes. By turning down the thermostat by one degree, reducing shower time to four minutes and eating veggie two days per week, they could reduce their household bill by up to £728.
