Would you like to take action on climate change but don’t know how you can help...
Planet Super League is an initiative set up with the upcoming COP26 Global Climate Change summit in mind and it has 49 clubs battling it out for to be named champions. The competition challenges everyone to complete small simple activities that will have a positive impact on the environment, and it’s with a twist: every action you take, you’re scoring goals for your favourite football club.
This is where top six Premier League sides can be humbled by the endeavour of ambitious clubs like Cambridge United and scores can reach their hundreds in the fight for football and climate glory.
Our journey so far has been a fruitful one. In the group stages, we have had the following results and currently sit second in the Group D Table.
- Cambridge United 4 – 0 Leeds United
- Cambridge United 3 – 198 Hull City
- Cambridge United 62 – 10 Southampton FC
- Cambridge United 219 – 0 Preston North End
We are in a rich vein of form and want it to continue. Just like the First Team, we are playing Ipswich Town in our last group game this week - which ends on Sunday - and a win would guarantee us a place in the knockout rounds.
Here is how you, our fantastic supporters, can help us lift the Planet Super League trophy at the end of the month:
- Go to www.planetsuperleague.com and sign up (it takes less than 2 minutes) – make sure to select Cambridge United as your club!
- Have a look through the activities and decide which ones you would like to do
- Complete the activities and upload them onto the website (most require some evidence – a simple selfie or screenshot from your phone will suffice in 99% of cases!)
- Keep up to date with our progress by clicking ‘Live’ on the website; watching on as our goals total grows and grows each week!
In Planet Super League, everyone plays on equal footing; we are competing and at the same time we are all in this together. We look forward to seeing your efforts!
