Lauren Chapman has become the latest addition to the Her Game Too Ambassador team for Wigan Athletic.  


“I started watching Wigan every week from the age of seven or eight, and I want to work with the club to encourage women and young girls to attend football matches and make it a safe and welcoming place for all.” 


Lauren was introduced to football at the tender age of one when her mum brought her to see the Latics during their first season in the Premier League, and she’s seen many ups and downs since. 

“The best moment was watching us lift the FA Cup after beating Manchester City at Wembley in 2013. Another fond memory is lifting the League One title in Shrewsbury in 2022 which came after one of the worst periods in our history when we entered administration in 2020 – to win the league the season after was unbelievable!” 


While Lauren has never experienced sexism following her club, she is determined to contribute to the campaign.  


“I wanted to become part of Her Game Too as I believe anybody should be able to enjoy their favourite sports without being judged for doing so. In 10 years’ time I would like to see Her Game Too recognised by all clubs from all sports all over the world. I’d like to see more clubs creating teams and groups for girls and women through the work of Her Game Too and would love to see a higher female presence at sporting events.” 


As a season ticket holder at Wigan Athletic Lauren is delighted to see the changes her club are implementing.  


“Wigan Athletic have recently formed their official women’s team which is very positive from the club. I am also on the committee of the official supporters’ club, which consists of six female fans including the chairperson, and we have recently formed a Her Game Too partnership with the supporters’ club which is very exciting.”
