Fans for Diversity: Aston Villa recognise fan groups

Our Fans for Diversity campaign has been helping supporters at Aston Villa for a number of years now and the club has recognised a lot of that good work this week.

Aston Villa will now have sections of the ground to feature flags from supporter groups who represent diverse parts of the community.

Six flags from six different supporter groups will now have a dedicated spot at Villa Park – Villans Together, Punjabi Villans, Villa and Proud, Villa Bellas, Aston Villa Disabled Supporters’ Association and Saathi Villans.

Head of the Fans for Diversity campaign Nilesh Chauhan said: “It’s excellent to see a club working with fan groups like this.”

Fans For Diversity is a campaign programme run in partnership between the Football Supporters’ Association and Kick It Out, English football’s equality and inclusion organisation. Fans For Diversity encourages, funds and supports initiatives by fan groups to promote diversity and inclusion in football, and to challenge all forms of discrimination.

For more information on funding available from the campaign, contact Nilesh Chauhan.
