Armed Forces Covenant

Hartlepool United are proud holders of the Armed Forces Employer Recognition Scheme Bronze Award having shown our commitment to serving and retired members of our Armed Forces.

In August 2016, we became the first football club in the country to achieve the coveted Bronze status and it leaves the pathway clear for Pools to attain Silver status in the coming years.

As part of the Club’s ongoing commitment to our Armed Forces, we also signed a special Armed Forces Covenant prior to our home game against Newport County at the start of the 2016/17 season.

This Covenant commits the Football Club to upholding the values of the Armed Forces, supporting and promoting their work and sharing the fact that Pools are a forces-friendly organisation.
