Kick It Out App – Making A Difference – Download It Now

Kick It Out’s App allows players, coaches and fans to report abuse in a confidential and anonymous way.

Launched last season, the app has already made a big impact with complaints of discrimination made by football fans to Kick It Out, rising by 269%.

There were 284 complaints submitted to Kick It Out last term, compared with 77 the previous year.

The majority of complaints received related to social media abuse (50%), then incidents attached to the professional game (26%), grassroots (22%) and professional players (2%).

There were 142 incidents of football-related hate crime on social media reported to Kick It Out and passed on for the police to investigate. One case led to a 21-year-old man from London being convicted and fined £150 after he had posted a derogatory remark on Kick It Out’s official Facebook page in January.

The app, which is designed to allow individuals reports abuse, whether it is racism, anti-semitism, homophobia, sexism or disability abuse, helps to tackle discrimination in football at all levels.

It has been tested and endorsed by all Premier League and Football League clubs, is FREE and available to all iPhone and Android users. You can download the app via the Apple Store and Google Play.

Backed by the game’s governing bodies, the app also provides news updates keeping you one step ahead of the campaign’s latest projects, events and initiatives.

It also acts as an alternative method of reporting, supplementing the current platforms clubs have in place, such as text reporting lines, anti-racism hotline numbers and email reporting services.
