Essex FA backing anti-racism campaign

Football clubs in Essex are being invited to raise awareness of anti-racism in collaboration with the Kick It Out campaign during their annual ‘One Game, One Community Weeks of Action’.

It runs until next Monday (October 29) and the Essex FA, who have supported events such as educational workshops, tournaments and festivals in previous years, are looking for activities to promote this time.

Varying levels of clubs nationwide have allocated specific matches on their fixture list during these weeks to help eradicate all forms of discrimination from the game.

Remaining one of the most highly visible community and social inclusion campaigns in the world, the weeks will see grassroots football join the professional game plus teams and leagues across the continent for a united stand against any discrimination taking root within the sport.

Throughout the 12-day spell, Premier and Football League clubs will be making their own contribution by holding matchday events at their dedicated fixture.

With the help of The FA, the Professional Footballers Association and the Premier League, Kick It Out maintains its operation as football’s equality and inclusion campaign, working with players, clubs, managers and fans.

It is during the Weeks of Action where the campaign remains most visible, acting as a united stand against discrimination and for equality.

If your club, group or organisation has specific plans to promote the Kick It Out ‘One Game, One Community Weeks of Action’, the Essex FA would like to hear from you to help highlight your best practice.

Call 01245 393085 or email or get in touch with @EssexCountyFA at FA. You can also visit
