Kick It Out’s One Game, One Community weeks of action is upon us, taking place from Thursday 13 to Monday, October 31 and our players, staff and supporters will be pledging their support.
Kick It Out continues to operate as football’s equality and inclusion campaign, working with players at professional and grass roots and community level, clubs, managers and fans throughout the year.
It is during the weeks of action where the campaign is most visible, with this period acting as a united stand against discrimination and a call for equality.
Tom Huddlestone will be flying the flag as club ambassador this season, as professional clubs across England and Wales will be making their own contribution by holding match day events and activities at their nominated fixture.
Lord Herman Ouseley, Chair of Kick It Out, is urging supporters to remain vigilant when it comes to reporting abuse, seen or heard within the stadium.
"Some of the worst excesses of abuse, where players, fans, even managers and coaches, were abused, harassed and attacked based on colour, race and religion, are now thankfully a thing of the past. But, pockets of unacceptable behaviour still exist. It’s the duty of everyone within the game to flag this up where and when it happens.
"It’s under the banner One Game, One Community which we tackle bigotry, intolerance and anti-social behaviour and its presence in our game. If something or someone is damaging your experience of football, share it with the appropriate governing body, club or contact Kick It Out where details will be taken, and acted upon."
