The Fans for Diversity campaign continues to go “from strength to strength” says campaign lead Anwar Uddin as its third annual report is published.
The campaign is a joint area of work between the FSF and Kick It Out, football's anti-discrimination campaign, to identify and tackle barriers to attending live football amongst under-represented groups.
Anwar Uddin, FSF diversity and campaigns manager, says Fans for Diversity's third year of activity and events has been extremely productive and rewarding.
“It’s been a privilege for me to lead on the Fans for Diversity campaign over the past three years,” Anwar said. “The campaign can be a real benefit to all fans and bring communities closer to their clubs.”
Over the last 12 months, Fans for Diversity has held events up and down the football pyramid as well as providing support to a number of newly-formed supporter groups through the Fans for Diversity fund.
The annual report details the campaign's support at clubs across the country including: Leyton Orient’s Fans for Diversity Hub, Blues 4 All at Birmingham City, the launch of the Lady Imps at Lincoln City and many more.
“There is still room for improvement and I believe with the help of football fans across the country we can work towards positive changes and start to see a real impact,” Anwar said.
