Huddersfield Town support FA Play Safe Weekend and make online Play Safe Pledge
- FA Play Safe Weekend
- Club pledge support to national campaign
- Materials proudly shared across website and social media
At the end of this month, English football at every level will unite to promote Play Safe – a national campaign to focus attention of the vital importance of safeguarding in our national game.
Led by The Football Association, the Play Safe campaign is endorsed by the NSPCC and supported by every level of the game, including the Premier League, EFL, Barclays Women’s Super League and Barclays Women’s Championship, and right across the grassroots game.
We are proud to be supporting Play Safe on our website and social media channels – and also by making an online Play Safe Pledge. Proudly supporting the campaign, we highlighted Play Safe at our recent home fixture with Ipswich Town at the John Smith’s Stadium. We also pledge to:
• Ensure the importance of Safeguarding continues to be promoted across the whole of our Club
• Display the contact details of our Safeguarding Team in all areas of our Club and on our Website
• Keep our staff up to date with Safeguarding training and key safeguarding messages
• Listen to the views of our young people – players, and fans and work with them on changes which can be made to improve their experiences
Head of Safeguarding Karen Crosland commented:
"We are privileged to work with so many young people and are dedicated to providing a safe and positive environment, enjoyable experiences and to protect young people from harm through the power of football."
Of course, safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, so if you haven’t already, why not make your own Play Safe Pledge? We encourage you to do so.
This year’s Play Safe weekend has two main messages:
- ‘Everyone, everywhere, every time’ should have an understanding of safeguarding in football
- Everyone should ‘watch, listen, talk and act’ if they have any safeguarding concerns.

Together, let’s create an ever-safer culture across the game we all love.
