As part of our desire for a wider debate and action on how to collectively eradicate anti-Semitism from our footballing community, the Club has arranged to meet with Kick It Out and the Metropolitan Police next week in order to discuss measures to be taken both inside and outside stadia.
CLUB SUPPORTS KICK IT OUT SURVEY
A key component for this debate is for us to understand the views of the fans in relation to discrimination in sport. We are therefore delighted to support Kick It Out as they ask supporters to have their say in the biggest-ever fans' consultation on tackling discrimination in football.
The survey, which can be completed by clicking here, covers a range of topics from how to improve reporting of abusive behaviour and stewarding in stadiums, to combating abusive behaviour on social media. The findings will be used to form a blueprint for football authorities in tackling discrimination in the game.
At a time when discrimination is high on the football agenda, it is easy for fans and players to forget the great strides made over the last 20 years. But, there is still a long way to go.
Kick It Out believes this important dialogue with football fans will help set out how to move forward in order to achieve a zero tolerance approach to discrimination in all its forms, and at all levels of the game.
