Hawks Launch First Annual Survey 

Hawks Pioneer Groundbreaking Survey in partnership with The University of Brighton and Pledgeball.  

Whitehawk Football club, in partnership with the University of Brighton and resource based campaign group Pledgeball, launch one of the biggest football and environmental surveys of its kind in the National Game, and invite Hawks and football fans, friends and family to take part.

The survey which is voluntary, has been put together by Jennifer Amann, a Master’s student studying Global Studies at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, Dr. Mark Doidge, Principal Research Fellow, School of Sport and Service Management at Brighton University, Katie Cross, founder of  Pledgeball and the Club. 

The project consists of two surveys and in-depth interviews. The aim of this first survey is to find out to what extent environmental concerns play a role for football fans on and off the pitch and how football fans can become a (visible) part of the solution to tackle climate change, and will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.

The second part is a more in-depth interview, and will be conducted at a later date. Both parts to the survey are totally voluntary, and follow all current data protection guidelines.

Everyone who takes part will be entered into a prize draw to win a Matchball Sponsorship package for four people at a forthcoming Hawks home game.

Hawk’s Head of Commercial and Marketing Kevin Miller said;

“Once again Whitehawk Football Club is at the forefront of change, and the information gathered from our family of fans will be vital in helping to steer the club — and football in general — to a more sustainable future.”

He added,

“I’d like to thank Mark, Jenny and Katie for their amazing work in putting this survey together, and I urge our fans to have a look through the survey, and help us gather the information to make the changes to a better future for us all!”

The survey is open from today (January 2) through to January 17.
