Lancashire FA is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with the Quit Squad, the stop smoking service funded by Lancashire County Council and delivered by Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust.
With the aim of encouraging players, their families, friends, coaches, teams, clubs and leagues to promise to keep their homes, cars, sidelines and spaces smokefree, Lancashire FA will work closely with the Quit Squad in sharing this vital message to ensure we all live healthier and happier lives.
This new partnership will also see the Quit Squad become the sponsors for the 2019/20 U13 Girls County Youth Cup.
Lancashire FA’s Head of Commercial & Operations, David Chell, said: “We are delighted to be working alongside the Quit Squad for the forthcoming 2019/20 season."
"Around 136,000 adults across Lancashire continue to smoke, and with incidents of this reported to have taken place on the sidelines across grassroots football, we feel it is vital we spread the Quit Squad’s important message and help people stop smoking."
"As we continue to move forward, this is a significant partnership for Lancashire FA and I am pleased to have such an important service as the Quit Squad on board.”
The Quit Squad’s Tracy Sutton, said: “We are excited by this joint piece of work with Lancashire FA to help create a Lancashire that is smokefree, especially when it comes to sports. It is so important to help people change behaviours and create a smokefree generation.”
