February is the international campaign month of ‘Football v Homophobia’ (FvH) and Coventry City is supporting the initiative, as we face Rotherham United on Tuesday night.
FvH is a campaign uniting fans, players, communities, grassroots teams, professional clubs and the Football Authorities in opposing homophobia and prejudice against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in football.
Year round, Football v Homophobia enables people to take action against prejudice and discrimination based on sexuality or gender identity in football, and to celebrate and welcome diversity in the game.
This culminates in an international show of support in February to raise awareness of the issue and to join together in making a visible stand against prejudice and for inclusion.
Change always starts with education and Coventry City recognises it has a role to play in leading the way on raising awareness of homophobia and LGBT discrimination within the club, for its supporters and its community.
