We are involved in a lot of campaigns in the local community that encourage participation in football from people of all backgrounds – both in terms of playing the game and supporting it.
We undertake initiatives from Fans for Diversity thanks to our interactions with the Football Supporters Association. These all centre around celebrating diversity throughout the football community. Regardless of background, race, sex, age, faith, or any other identifier, everyone should have the same opportunities to enjoy football and to participate in sport.
This is an area that we are proud to be involved in and we are currently doing a lot of behind-the-scenes work within various communities to make a difference. We are specifically looking to help certain community groups develop their own supporter’s groups to raise awareness that football is open to all.
As part of our work in this area we are also looking to work closely with the Youth Board, with the aim of introducing people from more diverse backgrounds into the football community.
