Hedgehog Friendly Football League

We have been chatting to all the English Premier League and EFL Championship football clubs about having our ‘check for hedgehogs before using’ warning stickers on their grounds maintenance machines and publicising it to all their fans. 

Whilst there may not be many hedgehogs at the stadiums, there certainly will be in fans gardens! We’ve been delighted with the response, with some teams agreeing to hand out leaflets for Hedgehog Awareness Week, feature us in match programmes, etc too! 

We have developed a Hedgehog Friendly League and will be publishing this on our website around the time of Hedgehog Awareness Week!  Currently top of the league we have Barnsley, Brighton & Hove Albion and Burton Albion!  Bottom of the league (facing relegation!) are those clubs who have refused stickers.  

We will be contacting other leagues as soon as possible and keeping league up to date.
