SKOOT X FOREST GREEN ROVERS: Partnership With the Worlds Greenest Football Team
We’ve been anxiously keeping our mouths shut about this for far too long! Today we’re proud to announce that SKOOT has officially partnered with football club Forest Green Rovers (FGR) as their Official Lift Partner For Fans, and will connect FGR supporters who want to travel to matches together, alongside helping those in the local community who may need assistance, truly giving the fans a lift.
A bit about Forest Green Rovers
Forest Green Rovers are far more than just your average football club. They go above and beyond off the pitch with their environmental mindset, making them recognised by FIFA and the United Nations as the worlds greenest football club.
The carbon-neutral football club look at all actions through their eco-lens. Everything from the vegan food they serve their fans in the innocent Stadium to the bamboo shin-pads each player wears – it’s all part of their journey to become completely carbon-neutral.
And we absolutely love this.
Which is why we want to take their mission one step further. Connecting fans together, to travel to and from games with the aim to reunite fans and communities like never before.
All while being carbon negative – planting a tree for every 3 rides, making each and every SKOOT journey 110% carbon negative.
Being the world’s only carbon negative Errand and Lift App, we share the same ethos as the club, with a mission to enable people to travel together and help each other in a safe and carbon-negative way, all at the click of a button.
As the end of lockdown isn’t far away, we can start to look forward to life slowly going back to normal. From next week the government are starting to unveil the road map out of lockdown and hopefully fans can start entering the stadium to attend games in the not-so-distant future.
This partnership comes at such an exciting time, not only because the end of lockdown is in sight and we can start to look forward to fans getting back under the floodlights. But also, because it’s never been more important to be conscious of your carbon footprint.
Football connects people emotionally and physically and brings communities together and we hope SKOOT Errands helps during these difficult times.
So as SKOOT unite with FGR to start the movement in connecting fans and communities to travel to stadiums as soon as lockdown lifts, we hope you can jump on board too.
Mark Stringer, Co-Founder of SKOOT said:
“Every once in a while, there’s a club that lights up the world with their passion, innovation and flair. Forest Green is that club and we’re incredibly excited to embark on this journey.” – And we look forward to brighter and greener times ahead.
Keep your eye peeled for more updates! Our mission doesn’t stop here, we want to innovate and create a blueprint for clubs to follow in the future. This is only the beginning.
Up the Rovers!
