NO TO RACISM
We’re launching our new social media campaign, #NOTORACISM encouraging people across grassroots football to simply say this will not be tolerated.
Starting from a fundamental point, we are simply saying no to racism. We will use the campaign to raise the awareness around the challenges of Grassroots football, as well as directing the grassroots community to services and support that may help.
Be clear! Speak up, speak out. #StrongerTogether
Ivan Liburd, BFF chair, said: “Many of the conversations that are highlighted are around the professional game, and this campaign raises awareness of the challenges in the grassroots game. One of the most serious concerns is the experiences of racial abuse experienced by those under 18 years of age.”
