The football family across the UK is coming together to support the Heads Up mental health campaign spearheaded by The Duke of Cambridge in 2020.
The campaign will be supported by all four national governing bodies (The FA, Scottish FA, FAW and IFA). Heads Up, an Heads Together campaigns, aims to harness the influence and power of football to generate the biggest conversation ever on mental health and build on the great work already happening across the game. There will be a number of key Heads Up moments during 2020.
BSC Glasgow are pleased to support the campaign at the upcoming William Hill Scottish Cup Fifth Round Match with Hibernian.
General Manager George Fraser said: “We know the statistics but mental health conditions affect us all closer to home than we might imagine and that’s why we’re proud to be supporting the Royal Foundation’s Heads Up campaign. We believe that everyone should take time to consider their own mental health and are keen to encourage this at Sunday’s match. We’ll be kicking off at 12.01pm to encourage supporters to take a minute to think about their own health.”
Football will come together over two weekends in February to support the Heads Up campaign. The ‘Heads Up Weekends’ will see The Scottish FA’s William Hill Scottish Cup, The English Premier League, English Football League, The Barclays FA Women’s Super League, dedicate matches to Heads Up over the weekends of 8th and 9th February, collectively raising awareness of the importance of mental health amongst football fans.
