Fans for Diversity: New space opens at Champion Hill

As the new season gets under way Dulwich Hamlet have made improvements to Champion Hill – with help from the Fans for Diversity fund – that they hope will encourage more people from the community to stop by the Isthmian League side.

The club’s equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) officer Danny Mills tells us more about the multi-faith and quiet space they’ve created…

I am extremely proud to announce that Dulwich Hamlet football club have opened our first multi-faith and quiet room.

Since signing the Muslim Athlete charter last year we have been working very closely with Nujum Sports to ensure we are fostering an environment where Muslim athletes, fans and staff feel welcomed to our football club.

This room will be available to all of our fans, players and club staff from any faith or background who wish to reflect and pray. The room will double up as a quiet room which supports those with any sensory disabilities.

We are so happy to be able to provide this space and will continue to show our commitment to all.

In my time at the club as EDI officer I have been very well supported and thank them for backing me and am looking forward to doing more great work!

We would like to thank our friends at Nujum Sports, Kick It Out, the Football Supporters’​ Association and Dulwich Hamlet Supporters’ Trust for all their support in making this happen!

This space is a celebration of diversity, inclusivity, and unity within sport. Together, we’re creating an environment where everyone feels respected.

In our house we are all equal.

The Fans for Diversity campaign is a partnership between the Football Supporters’ Association and Kick It Out which celebrates diversity in football to ensure all fans feel safe and welcome at the game. We have a small grant fund to help with your ideas so if you would like to create an event, a project or start a supporter group please email: [email protected]
