Eleven British Football Clubs Fight Homophobia

by our Editors in General , 23 maart 2014

Eleven British Football Clubs have signed a declaration in which the clubs commit to fighting homophobia in football.

West Ham's captain Kevin Nolan, who also gave the symbolic kick-off for a month of campaigns, stated: 'We're role models and it's important that we, as a club and as a squad, support the Football v Homophobia campaign’.

Lou Englefield, founder and director of Pride Sports, an organisation that fights homophobia in sports, assured that it 'isn't just about players coming out. It's about all of us – including heterosexual players and fans who attend matches week in week out – being willing to speak out and take visible action to challenge prejudice in the game'.

The eleven clubs are Chelsea, Manchester United, Aston Villa, Liverpool, Everton, Manchester City, Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Stoke City, Sunderland, and West Ham.
