Fans For Diversity continues to make progress in second year – report

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

The Fans For Diversity campaign has completed its second year of activity and continues to make progress supported by countless fan groups.

The campaign is a joint area of work between the FSF and Kick It Out, football’s anti-discrimination campaign, to identitfy and tackle barriers to attending live football amongst under-represented groups.

Anwar Uddin, FSF diversity and campaigns manager, says Fans For Diversity’s second year of activity and events has been extremely productive and rewarding.

“I’m proud of the fantastic progress being made by the Fans For Diversity campaign,” Anwar said. “This is thanks to the determination of so many fans across the country.”

Over the last 12 months, Fans For Diversity has held events across the country 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 work in the last 12 months including: a look at the Bangla Bantams one year on, Punjabi Wolves and Punjabi Rams, LGBT History Month, Colchester United’s Guide to live football and a major disability event at St Mary’s Stadium. Plus much more.

“I’ve enjoyed working with so many support groups from a variety of backgrounds,” Anwar said. “Many are now ambassadors for Fans For Diversity.”
