Swindon Town Stands Together Against Racism

EFL AND EFL CLUBS ‘TOGETHER AGAINST RACISM’ IN FIGHT AGAINST DISCRIMINATION

13 October 2023

Swindon Town is supporting the EFL’s ‘Together Against Racism’ campaign in their fixture against Newport this Saturday.

With support from anti-discrimination charity, Kick It Out, the campaign sees a focused drive from the EFL and its Clubs to stamp out racism and any form of discrimination in football.

CEO, Anthony Hall said: “We at Swindon Town Football Club are proud to be supporting the campaign - Together Against Racism.”

“Football is and always will be a game for everyone and we are both proud of the welcoming atmosphere that our supporters offer at The County Ground and are completely opposed to anyone that doesn't agree to the same values of inclusivity and anti-discrimination.

“Whilst football is working hard to eradicate racism and all forms of discrimination from our game at all levels, we are a long way from being where we want to be.

“We are calling on our supporters to make a difference and report any incidents of racism or discrimination you see or hear in the ground not just today, but at all matches in the future too.”

David McArdle, Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion for the EFL, added “While football has come a long way in recent years there is still much to be done and throughout October and beyond, we are calling on supporters up and down the country to be vigilant when they are attending matches and report any incidents they see or hear in stadiums or online.

“While incidents do get reported we also know that there are many that don’t and this campaign is about breaking down the barriers to reporting and educating supporters on why it is so important, the methods which are available to them and how it helps the football authorities, both in the short and long term.”

If a supporter has a complaint or enquiry please contact Lee Dover Lee.Dover@swindontownfc.co.uk. You can also visit www.kickitout.org or download the official Kick It Out app for your smartphone to report an incident.
