EFL Day of Action to celebrate impact of clubs in their communities

9 March 2020

Rovers will come together with other EFL Clubs on Tuesday 10 March to highlight the positive impact football has in changing people’s lives and the work taking place to tackle some of society’s biggest issues.

Across the Sky Bet Championship, League One and League Two, events will be held by Clubs on EFL Day of Action to showcase the very best programmes and activity they deliver in a number of important areas, including diversity and inclusion, education, and health & wellbeing.

The impact of the work carried out by EFL clubs and club community organisations (CCOs) is unparalleled, with more than half a million hours of group activity delivered and more than 40 million hours of participation each season.

During the 2018/19 season, almost 900,000 people took part in a wide range of activities across key areas, with Clubs and CCOs receiving more than £60 million of direct project funding. 

The EFL Day of Action aims to unite clubs and CCOs on one day to celebrate and highlight the impact they have in their communities, bringing together the most unique projects and programmes being run across England and Wales.

Managers and players from the EFL’s clubs will be attending events up and down the country on Tuesday to pay special visits to see participants in action and to provide their support to various projects.   

Rovers midfielder Matty Blair will be joining the Foundation for the biggest showcase of Fit Rovers on Tuesday afternoon. The Fit Rovers programme has made a huge difference to the lives of people in Doncaster and now serves hundreds of participants. Keep an eye on the Club Doncaster Foundation’s website and social media channels to see how the day progresses.
