Kick It Out is partnering with Non-League Day today at games across the county dedicated to the annual celebration.
The well-respected organisation, which campaigns for equality in football, is backing NLD for an eighth consecutive year.
Six clubs have dedicated their matches to Kick It Out to recognise the organisation’s positive contribution to football.
The games spread across the country are:
Stonewall FC (London)
Clapton FC (London)
IQRA FC Leicester (Midlands)
Newark Town (Midlands)
Campion AFC (Yorkshire)
Nantwich Town (North West)
All clubs will put on inclusive match day activities to underline their commitment to engaging with diverse communities.
Tajean Hutton, Kick It Out’s grassroots manager, urged fans to support their efforts.
“These are teams who work tirelessly to cater for their local communities. They deserve the support of the football community,” said Hutton.
Non-League Day is being backed by fans and founder James Doe to keep on growing and make a bigger impact than ever as the iconic event enters its tenth year this weekend.
Clubs and fans across the country are gearing up for this season’s big day on Saturday with more record attendances expected to be smashed.
Non-League Day has been a major success each year since Doe launched the idea in 2010 to encourage Premier League and Football League fans to attend a Non-League game when their clubs are not playing during one of the first international breaks of the season.
Prostate Cancer UK is the official charity partner of NLD. With the disease killing one man every 45 minutes in the UK, the charity is calling on fans to raise awareness.
