NEWS: EFL launches 'Together Against Racism' initiative

6 October 2023

Coventry City is supporting the EFL’s ‘Together Against Racism’ campaign in their fixture against Norwich City on Saturday.

With support from anti-discrimination charity, Kick It Out, the campaign sees a focused drive from the EFL and its Clubs to stamp out racism and any form of discrimination in football.

Dave Boddy, Chief Executive at Coventry City, said:

“Everyone at Coventry City is proud to be supporting Together Against Racism, as football continues to work to remove racism and all forms of discrimination from our game.

“At Coventry City we believe that Football is a game for everyone and we are proud of the welcoming atmosphere that our supporters create at the Coventry Building Society Arena every matchday.

“However, every season, there are reports of discrimination across the game, and likely more that go unrecorded, and we are calling on our supporters to make a difference and report any incidents of racism or discrimination you see or hear in the ground today and at all matches in the future.”

Supporters can report incidents in confidence using our reporting number on matchdays, or after a game by contacting matchday@ccfc.co.uk

David McArdle, Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion for the EFL, said:

“While football has come a long way in recent years there is still much to be done and throughout October and beyond, we are calling on supporters up and down the country to be vigilant when they are attending matches and report any incidents they see or hear in stadiums or online.

“While incidents do get reported we also know that there are many that don’t and this campaign is about breaking down the barriers to reporting and educating supporters on why it is so important, the methods which are available to them and how it helps the football authorities, both in the short and long term.”
