Yesterday the EFL and the EFL’s chosen charity Mind launched their latest campaign titled ‘Have Your Mates Back’ and Port Vale first team players Cristian Montano and Tom Pope have leant their support to the campaign.
The campaign asks fans to ‘Have Your Mate’s Back’, by noticing if friends are acting differently, giving them a call or dropping them a text asking if they are okay.
Mind and the EFL are encouraging players, fans and all in the football community to get behind the campaign by wearing their shirt backwards, displaying the Mind logo, and taking photos to share on social media.
Mind is also working closely with the EFL to ensure clubs and community trusts have programmes in place to support the well-being of both staff and volunteers that can be put into practice throughout the footballing calendar.
