Swansea City FC Head Coach, Russell Martin, is joining as Planet League’s latest ambassador.

Former Scottish international, Russell is passionate about sustainability. He’s spoken on BBC about plastic usage, electric car chargers and his family’s attempts to be more sustainable at home. Russell used to play for Wycombe, Peterborough, Norwich City, Walsall and MK Dons. Now he’s the manager of Swansea City, currently sitting in the top half of the Championship. He’s actually the second youngest Championship manager after Vincent Kompany!He told us: “I’ve long championed the need for football to play its part in helping to tackle the climate emergency, so I’m delighted to be a Planet League Ambassador.”

The Russell Martin Foundation will promote Planet League projects across schools in and around the Sussex area. “It’s a great and practical way for schools to get involved in what is such a vital issue and I’m looking forward to seeing the schools that we work with across Sussex take part and compete to be the greenest!” At Planet League we are really chuffed to be able to work with Russell and his Foundation to promote sustainable living to football fans. It’s really fantastic to be able to work with someone who is so ahead of the game on sustainability.
