Coventry City Football Club will show their support for the Kick It Out campaign at Sunday’s game against Tranmere Rovers.
Players will warm-up in Kick It Out t-shirts and there will be information around the stadium on big screens, in the programme and handed out to supporters, among other activities planned for the televised match at St Andrew’s in SkyBet League One (12pm kick-off).
Kick It Out is football’s equality and inclusion organisation, working throughout the football, educational and community sectors to challenge discrimination, encourage inclusive practices and campaign for positive change.
You can see more about the work of Kick It Out on their website at kickitout.org, on Twitter at @kickitout or you can also download the Kick It Out reporting app. This app allows fans to anonymously report any incidents of racism or discrimination that they witness at any level of the game, and also includes the latest news from the campaign.
Dave Boddy, Coventry City Chief Executive, said: “We are proud to support Kick It Out, and have a number of activities lined up to show our support for the campaign.
“We are committed to making football safe and inclusive of everybody – no one should be subject to racism or discrimination of any form at our games or in wider society.
“We hope that our fans will help us to support this campaign on Sunday, and by reporting any offensive behaviour to club staff and steward, whether that is home or away, or by using the Kick It Out app.”
