DCMS and the FA take matters of discrimination very seriously: any form of racism, anti-Semitism or homophobia is completely unacceptable. We have made good strides in tackling discrimination in sport in this country in the last 25 years but we can’t be complacent and must continue to work on it.
Following the 2012 Downing Street summit on racism in football, the FA are now delivering against a whole sport Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination Plan called “Football’s for Everyone” to build equality and inclusion in football. DCMS welcomes this commitment, and specific initiatives, such as “Football vs Homophobia”. The FA Inclusion Advisory Board reports quarterly to DCMS on the progress made.
