Leeds United to celebrate 25-year anniversary of Kick It Out at Millwall fixture.
This season marks the 25-year anniversary of Kick It Out and to mark the occasion Leeds United will dedicate the Sky Bet Championship fixture against Millwall to all the work they do.
For the last 25 years, the organisation has been at the heart of the drive towards equality, inclusion and cohesion for everyone who plays, watches or works in football.
Having started as ‘Let’s Kick Racism Out of Football’ in 1993, Kick It Out has evolved into an organisation which – working alongside its partners The FA, the Premier League, the English Football League, The Professional Footballers’ Association, the League Managers Association and the Football Supporters’ Federation, among others – fights ALL forms of discrimination in the game we love.
Since its inception, the organisation has provided a clear, independent voice within the game to challenge discrimination and exclusion, as well as offering education for professional players, clubs, fans, grassroots organisations and beyond.
Kick It Out also provides mentoring and guidance to help underrepresented groups participate in football and secure opportunities to develop a career in the game.
The main aim throughout this season and beyond is for everyone involved in football to continue campaigning for equality and challenge discrimination, while playing a part in shaping a fair and inclusive future for everyone who loves the game. But don’t forget to recognise how far we’ve come.
Let’s kick racism and discrimination out of football – together.
