This weekend provides a platform for fans, players and staff to show their commitment to equality and inclusion in football by wearing One Game, One Community t-shirts, donning campaign badges and stickers.
Over the coming weeks, there are a range of exciting free events being held for football fans to participate in such as the Kick It Out Cup, a tournament launched in conjunction with Powerleague, which scours the country for the best five-a-side team in the land.
Other highlights include a panel debate on the rise of social media in football taking place in London, and an education event on anti-Semitism in football, held in Manchester.
For a full list of events and further information on the weeks of action and how you can get involved, please visit www.kickitout.org
