Kick It Out’s Weeks of Action

Kick It Out’s Weeks of Action started on 18 October and will run until 29 October.

This important year for sport continues with football focusing on issues around discrimination and diversity throughout October.

With the fanfare and hyperbole of the season’s opening exchanges complete, October sees the competitive leagues enter a relative degree of calm and with it an opportunity to reflect on how football has worked to encourage greater involvement from minority communities.

Premier League and Football League clubs are encouraged to hold events and activities which involve supporters and players alike, and to embrace the inclusive and multi-cultural nature of the English game.

Over the last two season’s LFE has been working with Kick It Out to put Apprentice players through diversity training and this project is set to continue during the 2012-13 season.

LFE Chief Executive Alan Sykes said:

“This work is part of several enrichment activities that we conduct with our Clubs and Apprentices. It helps younger players gain a greater understanding around diversity issues which we hope will help later in life.”

“This work has already been recognised by Ofsted and is one example of the work being conducted in football to promote social inclusion.”
