The Football Association has launched a new campaign to make it easier for fans to help kick discrimination out of grassroots football.
Launched by Wembley bosses on Friday, the FA’s “Tell us, We’ll Tackle It” campaign is aiming to encourage spectators to report every act of discrimination witnessed within the game by updating and simplifying the process of reporting discrimination.
The initiative is now being rolled out by every County FA across the country in order to increase the emphasis on the importance of reporting incidents and reassure people that it can make a tangible difference with incidents recorded and offenders dealt with.
The FA has created a video to outline its zero-tolerance approach, reiterating that there’s no place for discrimination in football, whether it’s online, in training, on the pitch or on the sidelines.
The updated reporting process and website means all completed online forms will be sent directly to the relevant FA and County FA staff so they can begin any investigation process immediately. It also includes clarity on the process and FAQs to assist with any further queries.
