Women’s football kit news as the new Bristol Rovers Women’s special edition 2021-22 away kit sponsored by #HerGameToo has been officially unveiled this evening.
Both Bristol Rovers Community Trust and Bristol Rovers Women’s FC have donated the space in the centre of the new away kit to the HerGameToo campaign.
The HerGameToo campaign was started by twelve passionate female football supporters with their aim to welcome women into the football community as well as fighting sexism and online abuse aimed at female football fans.
Bristol Rovers Community Trust CEO, Adam Tutton said, “We are thrilled to have been able to offer the HerGameToo campaign the front of shirt sponsorship on our new kit. After witnessing the regular online abuse targeted at female football fans across the country, I felt it is vital that as the Club’s official charity we aim to foster an ethos in football, in which women are welcomed and respected equally.”
Charis May a Co-Founder of HerGameToo and Bristol Rovers supporter, said “Bristol Rovers Community Trust are continuously doing our football club proud with their efforts within the community and for the development of Bristol Rovers Women’s FC. Adam & Matt offering the front of the shirt sponsorship to HerGameToo within a matter of days of the campaign launch is an incredibly heart-warming gesture and something I will be forever grateful for. The support means a lot to all of us and we are extremely lucky to have the backing from the Community Trust. We are thankful to the Gas Girls, the Trust and anyone else who helps us in spreading the message of HerGameToo as we look forward to building a better future for females in the game.”
The 2021-22 Bristol Rovers Women’s away shirt is predominantly grey with a tonal zigzag pattern running across the jersey.
The sleeves are made up of a yellow zigzag pattern.
The cuffs are yellow whilst the collar is grey and yellow.
A white Macron logo is placed on the right breast with a monochrome Gas Girls badge on the left breast.

All proceeds from football shirt sales will be re-invested back into the free football provisions for girls within the community.
